Breaking news out of the Internet: there is something called “the Media Bloggers Association,” and they are working to destroy everything right and good with the world. Oh, and also they got a couple media credentials for Scooter Libby’s upcoming all-star trial. We call Dick Cheney Deposition Day!

“The Internet today is like the American West in the 1880s. It’s wild, it’s crazy and everybody’s got a gun,” said Thomas Kunkel, dean of the University of Maryland’s journalism school.
The standard of personal hygiene’s about the same too.
