Another great blog bites the dust

Monte Solberg is apparently retiring his blog. Monte was famous for some of his blog postings, his writing style was casual yet often extremely poetic. He could switch tones on a dime, which is a rare and highly valuable skill for a blogger (and, perhaps, a politician). But as of two-and-a-half weeks ago, his blog has shut down and may sit rather dormant. Of course, a resurgance is entirely possible.

I would like to be the first person to graciously offer to take up Monte's traffic in his absence, as I believe it to be quite large. I hope its okay man. I do have your autograph somewhere around here, so that may give me some legitimacy.

The Third Edge of the Sword baseball pool is available on the right-hand side of your screen just below my profile. Its free to join, you can put as little or as much effort into your team as you wish, and I promise not to stop harassing you until the draft day 32 calendar days from now.

A Slashdot poster gives us the typical iBlog. Works well for any MySpace or LiveJournal blog as well, I think.

Is it the same person using different names who keeps making some inane babble about the horrors in Alberta over at this Shotgun thread? Or different people? I can't tell. "Coleen", "Mrs", and "Fed Up Too" are the three trolls who may not be operating independently. I wouldn't advise putting too much effort into looking, but it would still be nice to know.

Anyways, time to see if I can fit in the end of that Tampa/Yankees game.
