What's Oop, Who's Yapping, What's Going Awn
Lonewacko's new slogan: "Don't blame me, I wrote-in Tancredo."

Manifest Content has moved.

The following press release was issued a couple of months ago:


Greensboro, North Carolina / PR FREE / Sep 19 2004 --

New Directory By Dan Romuald Emphasizes Local Blogging

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- A new internet directory is aiming to organize weblogs (commonly called blogs) by city worldwide. BlogsbyCity.com opened its virtual doors this week to help Internet users find blogs in their local areas.

BlogsByCity.com allows blog owners to submit a listing for their blog into categories divided into countries, states or provinces and cities.

“We're hoping to make it easier for internet users to find blogs in any city around the world,” said BlogsByCity.com founder, Dan Romuald.

“The recent success of events like the Piedmont Blogging Conference held in Greensboro, N.C. in August shows that there's a growing interest in local blogs,” Romuald said. “Right now, searching for blogs in a specific city on the large search engines is a tedious task. We want to make that process easier by limiting the directory to blogs categorized by their locality.”

BlogsbyCity.com was developed by Dan Romuald. Romuald also publishes his own weblog at www.greensboroistalking.com and owns and administrates www.hockeyphotoproject.com.

An Arizonan has written "You Know You're From Arizona When." The weather there is more extreme than in the Inland Empire - higher highs, lower lows. Excerpts:


You no longer associate bridges or rivers with water.

You discover, in July it only takes two fingers to drive your car, because your steering wheel is so hot.

You can make sun tea instantly.

You see two trees fighting over a dog.

You hear people say "but it's a DRY heat!"

You can finish a Big Gulp in 10 minutes and go back for seconds.



When in the Upland Mimi's Cafe on Sunday, I found an LA Times sitting around and read the Opinion section. Two articles were of note - one about John & Ken which basically took the editorial position "Nyah nyah," and a slightly more mature article from Sean Wilentz entitled "Hicks Nixed Slicks' Pick" that noted that a state by state red vs. blue differentiation is misleading, and that if you delve down in states such as California and Alabama, you'll see that the true dividing line is closer to urban vs. rural. For example, here are some county by county returns from this "blue" state:
