Okay, I'd love to tell you I'm far too cool to post about this, but . . . no, I'm not.
I was not online much this week and so I only today discovered that Krugman -- yes, that Krugman, the Shrill One -- linked to a 2005 post of mine from his NYTimes blog on Tuesday. The consequences for my meager traffic flow were pretty startling. The consequences for comments on my blog were about the same as always.
A very gratifying experience, except for the thought that I might have peaked five years ago without realizing it.
I was angrier, more earnest, and more into my old precincts of language and politics in the first year of this blog. Now I'm just more irritated.
