Salon Blog Quality Tour for You.
– Marcus O’Riley
hi, this is Marcus, I begin somewhat sheepishly. Seems I had a bit too much
of the devils Pepsi last night, and perhaps bad-mouthed some of the fine
writers of the Salon Community a wee bit. Yashouldnablameme.
I was talking to Mister Hoback and he told me that I was a lucky man. Hes
been paying me for my column in Salon stock, ten shares a column, and he told
me shares had gone up near 50% for the week. I could not believe it! So I went
on line and checked the price. I could not believe it! What do you take
me for, I ask Mister Hoback, a fool? Uh, yes,
I believe he said. Oh really, I ask him, getting a bit red in the
face. No, says he, ORiley, and we laughed and
laughed until I punched him right in the snoot. I should not have done that.
Now hes got a civil case against me and I have to write for free. All
by way of explaining why I might have come across slightly negative last night.
That Sucks doesnt.
After four days it shows all signs of being a weblog to watch, in spite of bad
mouthing the brilliant Welch God, Tom Jones.

what I do for a living, so strike me blind if I read this one.
some good points about the quality of writing on the web. To quote: Een

wrote a eulogy for the Liz Graytooth blog a couple anights ago, and it
was on a diskette that was accidentally demolished. Now I see that the
blog has fallen right off the charts. The curse of the Salon Blog Death
Watch, effective even if unpublished. Coming soon: The
Adorable Roxie Morokco.
I ask meself. Whereve I heard of that before? And yet, there it is, snuggled
in at number 4 on todays hit parade. whats.up, I ask meself, and I take
a peek. Aha. TiBooks hit 1GHz,

gonna score everytime.

Room Only lately.
