Our vast influence 

A site called PresidentialWatch08 has developed an interesting map of the political blogosphere, showing the relative influence of 297 leading blogs and other sites. Apparently "the idea here is to look at linking between political blogs in only a political context, discarding other links that are outside of context." Protein Wisdom has more.

Anyway, out of undoubtedly misplaced pride we note the location of this humble blog smack dab in the heart of the right side of the graph. Our influence is indeed vast, and we pledge to use our great power wisely.

Neighbors in the township, neighbors in the galaxy!

It looks to me that the graph is measuring political leanings. The blue dots seem to be left leaning and the red dots right leaning. TH your position seems to suggest that politically you are right of center, but not by a great amount.

You are right at the heart of things! You are in good company too!

A red dwarf, indeed, but not a black hole!

That's an awfully small dot.

True, but it is a well-positioned small dot.

It's a very well-connected small red dot, as is Fausta's blog ... which is one reason why your blog and hers are key blogs I read.
