Other Responses to Tim Rutten

A number of other interesting, thoughtful responses to Tim Rutten’s Los Angeles Times piece comparing bloggers to nineteenth century pamphleteers, in a less than favorable light. Thanks to Ken Layne I found Rand Simberg’s pithy take—he too takes an interest in the pamphleteers. And you’ve got the noteworthy blogs of Mickey Kaus, Rutten’s primary target, Matt Welch, and the Instapundit, Professor Glen Reynolds, who points out how idiotic the Registration scheme at L. A. Times is.
