too many words

once upon a time, journalists were paid per word for their work. it is possible we need to value the writing of words again but to a different end. if I had the courage of my convictions, i would campaign to have people like me get paid not to write.

despite all the fawning attention paid to the blogosphere, there is far to much crap out there (here). a scheme should be arranged that paid us per word for stuff we didn't publish. that way you (if you exist) would be spared this sort of self indulgent nonsense and I would earn some pocket money.

unfortunately, I don't have that courage so return to this blog for more idle thoughts for you to fill your idle time with.
