Bloggers of the World, Unite!

The Associated Press has reported that a loose coalition of bloggers is trying to form a blogger's union. The article states:

"I think people have just gotten to the point where people outside the blogosphere understand the value of what it is that we do on the progressive side," said Susie Madrak, author of the Suburban Guerrilla blog, who is active in the union campaign. "And I think they feel a little more entitled to ask for something now."

But just what that something is may be hard to say.

We posed the question of a bloggers union to a panel of former Claremont City Councilmembers, and they responded unanimously: "GET A LIFE!"

And, a bloggers union would likely result in more work for Anand Gupta, our correspondent in India.
