Hey, you kids!

Shorter St. Louis Post-Dispatch commentary on blogs:

Hey, you kids! Get off my lawn! (harrumphs, shuffles back to rocker)

Coming next in the P-D: A daring commentary on the evils of the horseless carriage and a nostalgic look back at the buggy whip industry.

While waiting for the unlikely appearance of a pro-blogging piece in the Post-Dispatch, we can consider things that journalists can learn from bloggers, and vice versa.

Addendum: Commenter TJ points to a balanced refutation of the Luddite mentality of the Post-Dispatch commentary, courtesy of the L.A. Times.

It's bound to be picked up by the P-D. Oh, yeah. Any day now.
