I heard something about this WSJ column by Peggy Noonan yesterday but didn't have time to read it (I wonder how, since it was published today?). Today I'm e-mailing the link to dozens of friends and co-workers.
There's an incredible acceleration of blog talk in the MSM just this week. Perhaps the confluence of Gannon/Eason and the spreading awareness of RSS/podcasting etc. is driving this toward critical mass for pop cultural awareness.
