Last Friday I wrote and posted blog entries dated 19, 20, 21 and 22 August as I was going away for a long weekend and I knew it would be difficult to get an internet connection. I freely acknowledge that this is not rational behaviour but I am not alone. Joel Achenbach has got it too.

The blog is hungry. The blog will not be ignored. It is an insatiable little beast, a creature still unclassified by science -- hairy, warty, slobbering, with its own fiendish agenda. I often fantasize about killing the blog, but I worry that it will respond just like the crazed computer in '2001: A Space Odyssey': It will try to kill me first.

Read the whole thing in the Washington Post.
