NOT A HATCHET JOB: Today's Chicago Tribune has an InstaPundit profile. Here's the key passage, though:
This is a point that Reynolds makes repeatedly: "I get more attention than I deserve. Some bloggers deserve more than they get. I'm happy to have it. Nobody becomes a law professor without a big ego. But, I encourage you to scroll down on my Web site and look at some of the other Weblogs."
In addition, says Reynolds, the huge amount of e-mail he gets "tells you how many smart people there are out there and how many of them are in jobs that are not traditionally thought of as `intellectual' jobs where smart people go. Truck drivers and insurance salesmen and mechanics. You know. People! They're smart as hell."
They are. And while I'm happy for the attention, there are a lot of interesting profiles of other bloggers waiting to be written. If you're a journalist, and you want to write on blogs, check out the links. Or email me and I'll give you some suggestions.
