A blog milestone of sorts

The staid ol' Associated Press jumps into the 'sphere with a blog called "Bad Language."[AP]

All you should expect from Bad Language is sarcasm-coated news and commentary about all things pop culture.

If you're confused on what a smog — as our granny called it — is or how it fits into The Associated Press' infrastructure, think of it like this: The AP is the all-knowing yet crotchety robe-clad Sanford and we're his wiseass but totally lovable Son, hocking junk you could probably live without.

Virtually every daily newspaper in the USA subscribes to AP. Some oldtime newspapermen will consider this move by AP to be downright heresy while the newer generation likely will welcome it.
