Is this thing on?
If any more proof were required that nobody reads Gristmill, it came this week. You may recall that almost a month ago, I discussed the merits of Barack Obama’s scheme to give the auto industry help with their healthcare costs in exchange for more research on fuel-efficient cars. Then last week, I posted Obama’s speech on energy independence — mere hours after he delivered it!
Then Matt Yglesias picks it up, also citing an old Prospect article by the Reapers on the subject — and conspicuously failing to cite my response to said article. Then Oil Drum picks it up "courtesy of Kevin Drum" — scarcely a grist or a mill to be found.
Clearly something is badly broken in the blog world. And that something is that I’m insufficiently famous and revered.
