Hark, the Daily News proclaims

From today's New York Daily News "Blog Patrol" column, by Dawn Eden:

'Twas the night before Christmas, and the preachers were stirring - writing their blogs. Here's a sampling of the ways that spiritual leaders are using their blogs today to share the true meaning of Christmas and Chanukah. ... Pastor Jeremy Del Rio, director of Manhattan youth development agency Generation Xcel (genxcel.blogspot.com):
"Christmas says a loving God became flesh to live among humanity. His method was unseemly (unwed mothers were capital criminals), unsanitary (barnyard birth), controversial (astrologers perceived it from stars), lowly (shepherds, not innkeepers, understood), politically radioactive (Jesus was "king" of occupied people), deadly (the king slaughtered innocents in response) and religiously offensive ('Messiah'). Yet within that scandal we find joy."

"Your My Blero" - blog hero!
Way Cool!

Hey...let's try to develop enough blog terms and develop a blogtionary and have William Safire write about it in his section "On Language" in Sunday's New York Times magazine!

Can you tell I'm drinking the Blogaid? Okay, I'll stop!

Hey,
I spoke to Ken - went great!

I'm definitely down with the learning community stuff!
