Link of the Day, to Someone...

Link of the Day, to Someone Who I've Inexplicably Never Linked to Befo have a few things in common. He was born in Long Beach, in a year ending in the number 8; I was raised in Long Beach, and born in nearby Bellflower in a year ending in the number 8! Our first and last names, when added together, have nine letters, which is unusually short! Drum's mum is a retired schoolteacher in Garden Grove; I just finished writing an article about an unretired schoolteacher in Garden Grove! Kevin attended Cal Tech -- so did my stepdad! Kevin was city editor of his college paper; I was assistant news editor of my college paper. Kevin has an older sister who's first name starts with a K, and who works in the performing arts field in Orange County; I have an older sister who's first name starts with a K, who works in the performing arts field in Orange County (well, she's a classical pianist, and a teacher).

OK, sorry. Anyways, Kevin posts interesting stuff, like this survey of the average word-count-per-post of 30 bloggers, dominated by Little Stevie Den Beste with 1,240 a pop, with the spartan Brian Linse clocking in at 71. (Adding fuel to those who think we're all attached at the hip, Layne, me and Blair came in 20th, 21st and 22nd, with an average of 127, 124 and 121, respectively).

And here's a thoughtful take on that blog-model business I was talking about. Mostly, there are smart takes on current events and whatnot.
