Warning: More Dangerous than Black Tar Heroin | It is, according to a story in Thursday's New York Times, "a pastime for many, even a livelihood for a few. For some, it becomes an obsession. Such [people] often feel compelled to [do it] several times daily and feel anxious if they don't keep up. As they spend more time hunkered over their computers, they neglect family, friends and jobs. They [do it] at home, at work and on the road. They [do it] openly or sometimes, like Mr. Wiggins, quietly so as not to call attention to their habit."

And just what might this illicit, compulsive activity be? Online porn, right? A nasty little coke addiction, maybe?

Nope. Try blogging.

Katie Hafner's story is about what you'd expect from the Grey Lady -- a rather flatly written, finger-wagging look at bloggers who just don't seem to know where to draw the line. ("Tonight on Fox: When Bloggers Attack!") It might have been nice to talk to, say, those of us who have found a way to balance our home, professional, personal, and blogging lives, or even people who, like, do this because they enjoy it, not because they're possessed by it.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to sign out of Blogger so that I can cruise to while I take a hit off my crack pipe. Cheerio.
