Jerry Brown, the former Governor Moonbeam to some (not to me), is showing himself to be a real blogger, not some pol pretender with a ghost writer. Moreover, he seems far more savvy about what’s going on in the blogosphere than most of the MSM. The reason for that may be that he is less threatened by us than certain media types are. But it also may be that he has a genuinely inquiring mind. I don’t think he’s being pretentious when he quotes Schopenhauer. I think he’s actually read him. And I also think he’s genuinely anxious to get into a dialogue. He has open comments. It’ll be an interesting test of some people’s maturity to see if it stays that way. This blog has managed to sustain open comments since its inception. I hope his does too.
