Blog on Fire
Every time I appear on Wait-Wait I get an additional seven to ten thousand visitors to this site for a day or two. Most of you check out the blog because 1) You think you might actually get some fresh and/or inside information about something. This almost never happens unless you consider my personal tractor activities something. 2) You really don't have time to read the longer and more thoughtful essays loaded on the home page. 3) There is no way you came here to buy a book.
I have been experimenting with this blog with the same sort of scientific focus employed by our ancestors as they explored the parameters of, say, fire. This would have amounted to sitting around and tossing things into the flames to see what happens. Usually nothing did. It just burned up. Same here.
Tune in next week for another exciting episode of Tom's Blog.
