Oh, The Poor Thing

This article isn't new, but it's new to me. Apparently, John Schultz "maintains several senior-related Web sites", lives on Cape Cod and was forced at gunpoint to write an article on blogs for the Cape Cod Times supplement for seniors, Prime Time.

I say "forced at gunpoint" because he does nothing in this article but whine about how awful blogs are. Everything from how he doesn't like the name "blog", to how "no subject is out of bounds", to how most bloggers sound as if their "funny cigarettes were soaked with airplane glue". (How did he write "funny cigarettes" with a straight face? Hee!)

I feel sort of bad for the senior audience that he purports to address. Don't they deserve someone who can actually write something insightful about an internet phenomenon, rather than treating it with contempt?
