In my recent frustrations over the kind of public discourse the Park51 project "debate" is producing, I've been finding new blogs to read. I have to share with those of you who follow here a true gem: Black Magpie Theory. It is everything I could want in a multiply-authored blog; it's arty, snarky, funny, and insightful. It offers the right mix of politics, popular culture, environmental news, rants, poetry, visual art. As I continue to contemplate the re-design of this blog, I could do a lot worse than to emulate BMT. Seriously, check it out!
If I seem to be writing Bungy Notes with greater frequency lately, that is equal parts commitment to blogging and work avoidance. I admit: I am in denial about the work piling up on my desk. Which is simply to say, don't get used to this frequency of output. I doubt I can keep it up. But I will be trying to make my posts here at least more regularly, more predictably. Do they make the blog equivalent of roughage for that?
