"That baby you been feedin' all these years? He ain't even yer kid!"
i've been trapped in a jerry springer episode for the past two days, but i'm changing the channel. i don't know if the "debate" is still going on. maybe it's fizzled out. these things tend to do that. my blog had twice the hits yesterday. i'll bet the site meters were spinning at the places actually blogging about the controversy.
joe konrath and kelly parra both had an excellent posts yesterday on responsible blogging. robert gregory browne also had an excellent post on his blog. you should check them out.
in the blog world, words are forever. even if someone decides to remove an entire thread along with comments, it can still show up if googled. i'm not saying that was done, i'm pointing out how words remain on the internet even though they are no longer on your blog. when you blog, think etched in stone. think possibly backed up in a file on somebody's external drive.
you never know who's watching and reading.
