The Springfield bloggers met Tuesday evening at Patton Alley Pub, drawing more than a dozen of the Unusual Suspects. For those who give a shattenkirk about it, Tony Messenger of the News-Leader made an appearance but brought no mugs.
Sitting there it occurred to us that the local bloggers -- so different in backgrounds, so varied in writing styles and textures of thought -- are pretty much the homely home version of "Lost," that television show on ABC.
We've got Andy @ Rhetorica, who's the hip Charlie, only Charlie would know Nirvana. Fat Jack is Hurley, sans hair. Marmot is Michael, if Michael wasn't a dude. Chiles is Jin Kwon (again with the gender caveat).
John Stone is Locke -- potentially insane, but the smart guy at the table and the only one who can save us from this damned island. God help us all.
