Ellen Goodman Breaks Pole Vaulting Record

In yesterday's nationally syndicated column, Ellen Goodman joined the attack on bloggers. While her primary focus was bloggers who were trashing Jill Carroll, she used a very wide paintbrush--actually it was more like using a paint sprayer--and ended up attacking all bloggers. Here is a sample quote:

Nevertheless, this is not a good moment for the bustling, energetic Wild West of the new Internet media. Remember when a former CBS executive described bloggers as guys in pajamas writing in their living rooms? Well, it seems that many have only one exercise routine: jumping to conclusions.

I can assure you of two things--I don't blog in my living room, and I don't wear pajamas. As far as jumping to conclusions, Goodman's column qualifies her for the Olympic pole vault team.
