Huffington Organizes Celeb Blog.. Meh

The New York Times reports that Arianna Huffington, columnist and former independent candidate for governer of California, has created a blog to be written by the likes of Walter Cronkite, Norah Ephron, Warren Beatty, Diane Keaton, and Vernon E. Jordan Jr. News, politics, nature, that sort of thing. With all the popularity blogs have been getting recently, I guess this isn't so surprising. The NY Times bills the upstart as a competitor of The Drudge Report, though really it's just another celebrity vanity project - one that us mere mortals may comment on. Assuming, of course, that celebrities even write the thing. They might as well hire minions to do it for them. Don't expect candid as-they-see-it reporting, either. Remember, they have reputations to look after.

Nah. For entertaining, insightful, uncomfortable blogging I'll stick to the unknowns out there who find their voice through this medium. That's how it started, anyways.
