Why are you reading this?

The revolution will not be blogged, says Mother Jones writer Geoge Packer.

"The constellation of opinion called the blogosphere consists, like the stars themselves, partly of gases. This is what makes blogs addictive � that is, both pleasurable and destructive: They're so easy to consume, and so endlessly available. Their second-by-second proliferation means that far more is written than needs to be said about any one thing. "

Well, that's it. I'll stop. I'm off to the low-rent coffeehouse in the Masonic temple building, a small town coffeehouse with no wireless Internet access and hence no one generating "little spasms of assertion." And I will stop at the hardware store, the realm of the tangible.
