I know Atrios and let me tell you...

"A guy named Atrios":

he has almost as many readers as the Philadelphia Inquirer

Then there's those "somewhat popular bloggers"....who are also not Atrios, and don't look like Atrios. Neither the West Wing version nor the real version I suspect.

NBC tells us Atrios is "not much of a people person." Ahh, the skewed public perception of "bloggers."

[For the TVwithoutpity crowd, this is a liberal blog where most everyone has an idea of what Atrios looks like, just in case you were wondering, here's what Atrios actually looks like right around the time he stopped being an anonymous blogger. When I first met him--and a bunch of other bloggers--I was pleasantly surprised at how "normal" we all are in real life.]
