Liberal Blog Update

I completely forgot that Salon.com also hosts a ton of blogs, many (if not most) of which skew liberal. I think you get a higher quality of blogger on the Salon sites, generally speaking-- Salon's a bit intellectually snobbish, which doesn't bother me a bit, since I'm a snob myself. My point is that, with snobbism, there's an incidental benefit: you're likely to get less raving and more substance (btw, I never meant to imply that conservative bloggers never rave).

It was at one such Salon site that I saw a well-argued case against the meta-Matrix idea (as you know, if you've been following this blog, I'm in favor of the meta-Matrix idea; cf. my bet with the Wachowskis, waaaaaay below or in the blog archive). True: a Salon blog about "The Matrix" doesn't really indicate how substantive a given blogger's political arguments are. I grant that. But that blogger seemed to know his/her stuff, and that's a fundamental requisite for arguing anything well. So I think it's safe to assume that that blogger, and others like him/her, know how to put ideas together in an original, coherent, and cogent manner.

Anyway, the above link takes you to the most recently modified Salon blogs. Enjoy.
