The Chron takes yet another stab at blogging

I suppose one could say that MeMo, the latest attempt at "blogging" by the Chron, is a step in the right direction in that this effort, unlike earlier ones, actually has a separate link to each day's entry and a sorta-kinda blogroll on its own page. As for the cutesy no-capital-letter style and the numbered-list indicidual entries, well, degustibus non disputandem est and all that.

But for crying out loud, if the Chron is going to have a features writer blog, THIS IS A JOB FOR KEN HOFFMAN, DAMMIT! He'd be a total natural at it, and maybe, just maybe, he'd be hip enough with this "Internet" thing to want his "blog" to be in a style that's actually recognized as a blog. I swear, it really is to weep sometimes.

Thanks to Jack for the catch.

It could be worse. Leon Hale could be doing it. :)

I totally agree, though, that Ken Hoffman should be doing this. We don't get the Chron, but on the rare occasion we pick it up, I always look for his column.
