    First, a pet peeve. Post-and-run diarists, who publish a diary and then leave it and don't look at the response to it in the form of people's comments, are the blog equivalent of ending a speech, looking at an audience and saying "Talk among yourselves." It's dismissive.  
    I dislike celebrities and politicians who post a diary and then do not interact with the community. I don't care who you are. If you write a diary, be around to answer some posts.
    Otherwise we're just being used.

    Isn’t it ironic to think that man might determine his own future by something so seemingly trivial as the choice of an insect spray. Rachel Carson, Silent Spring

      Man, he appeared briefly, didn't really answer any questions thrown to him, and then must have freaked due to the responses to that!

      Wonder whatever happened to him....?
