    Speaking only for myself, I’d appreciate a short sentence of explanation. There seem to be a growing number of items that are nothing but a video or other link, with no clue as to what it is.

    Life is too short and too busy just to go blindly following links … thanks.

    Scott. Thanks for the kind suggestion.

    This is a video. You click the “play” button. The narrator then explains to you what this is.

    I should add, though, that there are ten of these. The first eight are posted on this blog (two today, one per day thereafter). But the last two are broken … no sound. But you don’t need to hear them all.

    You are incorrect about your statement that there is a “growing number of bla bla bla…” on this site. There is actually a shrinking number of posts, and a growing percentage and absolute number of substantive and original items and a shrinking number of newsy linky things.

    However, I have not (and shall not, by jove) decrease the number of links to things such as blog carnivals, etc. because that is my duty as a blogger. Perhaps it is from this that your perception grows.

    And thank you for the snotty reply, Greg.

    Scott,

    That is a classic. I will frame it an hang it in the Comment Hall of Fame.

    By the way, are you the same Scott Belyea works for the movies?

    Do you actually have a comment hall of fame? Where’s the link?
    If you don’t have one, make one, and give me a link to follow;-)
