THE COLLECTED BLOG-POSTS OF JOSEPH HARRINGTON

Can you imagine??! No? Good.

I've been perusing a collection of letters recently, and it occurs to me - correspondence was the blogging of the twentieth century! Duh!

I just hope someone is printing all this stuff out and donating it to manuscript collections somewhere, so that they'll still be around when the lights go out.

joe, i guess that sarcasm is the new honesty, just as blogging is the new correspondence. i just don't believe you when you say this stuff. i don't know why.

it's not sarcasm it's irony

it's neither sincere nor insincere

except for the part about collecting blog posts for rare book & ms libraries

you wont find these in a musty attic someday
