Any writer who tells you they don’t care about their work being recognized is full of sh-t. That said, I try not to get too concerned about who is and isn’t reading or linking to my stuff. I figure I just plug away and if I express a perspective that resonates with people, it will eventually find an audience.

But getting praise from Bob Somerby is something special. Somerby writes for The Daily Howler. He pounds away, day after day, on the idiot hippie-hostile narratives at work in the mainstream media. He’s been at it for a long, long time, and is a real pioneer in the progressive blogosphere. In today’s edition, he praises my piece on bashing dirty hippies and getting played. I’m blushing.
