    Some good ideas here.

    I think the breakdown really comes in two areas: quick-and-dirty posts, which link to the news as a means to starting a discussion thread, and; more substantive posts, based on research, more extensive analysis, or whatever.

    I'm new at this, but my bias as a diarist is toward the latter (the "Somerby model"?). I like to take the time to really explore a topic, and diaries like that are the diaries I enjoy the most.

    So, maybe a "from the news" section, with smaller items, and an "Op-Ed" section, for more in depth writing.

    Just a thought.
