The non-fisticuffs continue in the Andrew Sullivan / Kurt Andersen celebrity blog death match. Sullivan: "But will bloggers actually deeply undermine editorial and corporate power in the media? So far I think the answer is no. Blogs aren't replacing mainstream media; they're infiltrating, supplementing, and buttressing it." Andersen: "Hey, Andy! Does anyone ever call you Andy? I assume not." And also this parenthetical, which I totally concur with: "(By the way, why doesn't Michael Kinsley blog here under the Slate umbrella? I'd PayPal for that.)"
I guess I shouldn't be so befuddled by AJR profiling The Onion, but yet I am.
For local-yocals, mark your calendars (Sept. 20-27) for one of the events that makes these twin cities great: Sound Unseen.
