Hi Rudy,

Imagine information as a viscous fluid - say molasses ... now watch it flow through the sieve.    ;-)    and grab the handi-wipes!

{No?  How bout as racing toy boats in the rain gutters?}

Them 'Fightin Whites' made our local TV newscasts here in Houston last weekend ... cuz I remember watching it and commenting ... "You know how you can tell it's a slow news day? ...

(Why the heck were they on the 'local' news in Houston?  I still don't get that.  Cool t-shirt though - reminds me of the 'cult of Bob'.)

     I've been noticing recently that a lot of stories
     that make it to the Top 40 take a few days before
     getting published on Slashdot.

     And now, CNN (through AP) is posting an article
     about the Fightin' Whites, days after that story broke
     on the Top 40.

     I guess that's the collective power of webloggers as a group.
