Instead of reading and writing blogs, I could be reading and writing _______. But really, I wonder how much imagination and thought are funneled into this form that formerly was expended on things like essays, poems, books, &c.

And what does happen when nobody can afford the utility bills any more? The missing link is the link after the last.
