Blogs Save the World

Steve Rubel waxes rhapsodic on the value of “Why I Blog” posts, enthusing, “Someone can blog about their cat having a hairball and in the next post come up with an idea that solves global warming.”

Somewhat unlikely, perhaps, but it could happen. Indeed, it’s not entirely inconceivable that hairballs are the key to the global warming puzzle.

    True.
    I’ve noted that every time the left has one figurative hairball going on ANY topic, Global warming seemingly becomes more of a problem.

    More likely that they’ll end up coughing up hairballs themselves.

    Hum? What is the carbon footprint of a hairball? Maybe cat owners are more liable for this Global Warming thing than first thought!

    As one of the first bloggers I am pro blogging but I think the impact is just a tad exaggerated.

    My blog contains everything from my thoughts on the Cubs to the daily stories of raising my kids and my dog.

    Maybe the Cubs rotation is key to global warming.
