John Little Takes the Braniff
UPDATE: Writing to amuse oneself, while great for avoiding blogger burnout, has the disadvantage of being somewhat abstruse on occasion for the reader.
There’s an old expression in the blogosphere, “taking the Boeing,” apparently coined by Tom Carroll, a reader at InstaPundit, and popularized by its proprietor, Glenn Reynolds:
“Take the Boeing.” That’s kind of a nice term for blogger-affiliation with major media.
Since I’m not sure the Houston Chronicle quite constitutes major media and since Little’s blog wasn’t absorbed there, I changed the phrase in honor of an old Texas aviation institution.
