So I checked Technorati.com this evening, that former darling of the blogosphere (do people use that term anymore?) I joined in 2005. Four of the twelve top stories were about American politician Anthony Weiner and his schlong. One third.

It's so disappointing that for all the blatant ratings grabbing and race-to-the-bottom journalism we accuse the mainstream media of pushing on us, blogs seem to be following the same path with vapid news stories that just aren't news. At least when I post pointless entries, they're cute! But I digress.

I guess a sex scandal sells, it's why Clinton was impeached and not Bush.
