Reading the zeitgeist's dipstick
Yes, I had hit the big time.
What amuses me is that Howie has two jobs commenting on culture and the media, for which I would guess he makes a pretty penny, and has written some books about same. But when he dropped a link to me in his blog, I got four, maybe five hits from it.
When Atrios or Crooks and Liars or any number of other blogs points me out, though, I get thousands.
Take from that what you will.
