Inmates running asylum at Philly blog

Stephen Baker

Will Bunch, a blogger at Philadelphia's Daily News, left for vacation saying he was leaving his blog, Attytude, in the hands of commenters. I clicked to the site, wondering if commenters were guest bloggers. But all Bunch did was invite comments on his last post. I skimmed them and don't recommend it as a reading experience. One nugget, though:

In the 20th century, the well-regulated use of indoor plumbing did more than medicine or any other innovation to reduce infant mortality and expand our life expectancy. So, the group most important to society? Plumbers. Quit bitching about $100/hr. We should obviously be paying them much much more.
