I read your letter to "Joe the Plumber." Very insightful as usual. You could paste the entire letter directly into the blog with formatting, photos, etc. to make it more interesting. Also I'd suggest editing your tags and removing (e.g., chance, coming for, joe, the, together). These are confusing. Tags are meant to be the most important keywords, referral points for finding over the Internet. Just a couple suggestions to make your blog more enjoyable for the reader. Presentation is everything.

Scientists have now revealed the detailed structure of the crucial enzyme produced by the bug.

At the same time, we talk about the rest of the market -- the long tail -- as though it were an aggregate force tempering the downfalls of the behemoth big three.
