Extra! Extra! The Ten Second News Links We’ve Overlooked!
There’s a phenomenon where someone writes an essay about this or that but someone else wants to discuss something that has not yet made it to Ten Second News.
This is unfair to everybody involved. It’s unfair to the guy who wrote the original essay because, presumably, he wants to talk about his original essay. It’s unfair to the guy who wants to talk about his link because it looks like he’s trying to change the subject. It’s unfair to the people who go to the comments to read up on the thoughts of the commentariat for the original essay and now we’re talking about some other guy’s links.
The intention is to have one of these on the Sidebar at all times. If you want to talk about a link, post it here! Or, heck, use it as an open thread.
And, when it rolls off, we’ll make a new one. With a preamble just like this one.
