OpinionJournal - Peggy Noonan - The Blogs Must Be Crazy - Or maybe the MSM is just suffering from freedom envy. Her most chilling prediction: "Finally, someday in America the next big bad thing is going to happen, and lines are going to go down, and darkness is going to descend, and the instant communication we now enjoy is going to be compromised. People in one part of the country are going to wonder how people in another part are doing. Little by little lines are going to come up, and people are going to log on, and they're going to get the best, most comprehensive, and ultimately, just because it's there, most heartening information from . . . some lone blogger out there. And then another. They're going to do some big work down the road." Will the infrastructure of the Internet be all that easy to rebuild from scratch? Or will we be talking in Morse code for a while? I wonder if "" is taken?
