Michael Kinsley Holds Our Interest For Record One Paragraph
There's a pretty good li'l blind item in Michael Kinsley's column this week (thesis: people on the Internet sure are full of themselves MySpace MySpace blog bloggy blog):
The first person I knew who had a Web site of his own was a fellow Washington journalist. This was when many journalists were still just getting into e-mail, but the URL for this Web site quickly circulated around town and around the world. Why? Well, we were all impressed by the technological savvy. But we were absolutely astounded by the solipsism. What on earth had gotten into Joe (not his real name)? This was a modest, soft-spoken, and self-effacing fellow, yet his Web site portrayed him as an egotistical monster.
WHO COULD THIS BE?
How intriguing! Until the second paragraph, when. as Blog P.I. notes, it's pretty clearly Andrew Sullivan.
