This, in the blog directory (not root directory) did the trick:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^(/blog|/otherblog)
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . %1/index.php [L]

Very similar to David's suggestion.  Actually, I'm not sure why  
David's suggestion didn't work.  He lead me in certain directions, I  
bounced around the web a few times looking things up and trying  
various permutations, and when it finally worked I realized I had  
gone the long way around and was back very close to what was  
suggested.  :)

Thanks for the help!
