I couldn't help but notice today just how poorly email is looking when compared to blogs. For instance, we learned today that a Rep. Foley, a South Florida Republican, resigned when the wrong folks learned about his sexually explicit emails to a 16-year old "page," whatever the heck that is. I thought we stopped calling people "pages" back in the Middle Ages. In any case, it definitely sounds suspicious, young boys running around in hose and little tunics. Icky email. Now, I look across the Google news page, and find that Ansari's space cadet blog is "inspiring millions". Ansari's Space Blog is, for lack of a better word, way cool, and offers us a view of space that we'd never get from those freaky uptight astronauts with their 50's style haircuts and space ice cream. Okay, yes, I do love the space ice cream, too. Too bad the only place you can buy it is in museums. Way to go, Ansari, way NOT to go, Foley.
