Local dwarf makes good

Apparently desperate for subject matter, Mark Glaser from the heretofore respectable Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Southern California, has written a very readable, fact-filled article on poker blogging and poker bloggers, including our very own Blogfather, Pauly, Otis and the Poker Prof.

Highly recommended. I think that what I like most about the article is that Glaser successfully captures the personalities of each blogger - Iggy as a likeable con artist; the hyperactive Pauly; and Otis and the Prof figuring out how to make a couple of bucks from doing what they already like to do.

And quibbles:

- 10 points deducted (I'm reading the latest Harry Potter) from Glaser for using the word, "Gonzo," a term that should have been retired with HST.

- With all due respect to the above gentlemen, where the heck are Maudie and Felicia?

"likeable con artist." i don't know what the hell that means but it sure made me laugh.
