The Boys in Boston

WOLF BLITZER: So, Fafnir and Giblets, what IS a blog?
FAFNIR: Blogs are the future Wolf.
GIBLETS: Yes! They are MADE of the future!

G: Blogs must be spontaneous intant reactions to the lightning events of the everyday! Giblets fires up a random news article, pounds his head against the keyboard several times, an hits the "publish" button for the purest of pure blog posts!
F: Otherwise you are not truly flowin in the electric consciousness Wolf.
G: But then we would lose our cuttin-edge appeal Wolf Blitzer. Our cuttin-edge appeal.
WB: But given that bloggers might be biased, or play "fast and loose with the truth," and given the increased importance of blogs today, should Americans be concerned?
F: Yes they should be very concerned. We are an unchained force of nature Wolf Blitzer! You cannot stop us once we spin out of telecommunicontrol!
G: Bow before the power of blog Wolf Blitzer! Bow before the power of blog NOOOOOOW!
WB: But that means the mainstream media would be defenseless before an onslaught of raw unfiltered opinion and skewed news!
F: It could lead to... a blogpocalypse.
G: A rain of electronic fire and doom upon all mankind!
F: An the mainstream press would be helpless to stop it.
G: Heeeeellllpleeeessss! BOWBEFOREGIBLETS!
