Ariana Huffington launched her celeb-intellectual blog - The Huffington Post today, the 9th of May. The lead post details the allegation that the SAUDI OIL INFRASTRUCTURE RIGGED FOR CATASTROPHIC SELF-DESTRUCTION, capitalized so.
This post details a soon-to-be released book, Secrets of the Kingdom, and NSA files on an in-place Saudi scorched-earth policy, including dirty bombs, that will be executed under orders from the House of Saud, presumably in the event of a rebellion, or invasion. Counterpoint articles have also been posted, and comments are in full swing.
Other current posts include a commentary by Arthur Schlesinger on the Yalta conference in 1945, decrying an opinion by President Bush that Yalta was "one of the greatest wrongs of history", Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Elaine Benes) on marriage troubles, and John Cusack's notes on Hunter S. A section called "Eat The Press" will give the readers a take on current media hotspots, using the "soon-to-be-very-tired food metaphors", and the objectification of media as an art form, perhaps.
In look and feel, it blends tones of green, black and red, bold fonts, and marquee tabloid-style headlines. The blogroll is impressive, as are the contributions. The lack of the ability to browse posts by category/author is sorely felt, inducing a welter of voices and ideas. Also, it does not seem possible to comment on any of the third-party blog posts. The blog is a smorgasbord of high-brow/low-brow ideas - not much form or substance yet.All the same, the rich content/author list make this a site to subscribe, digest, pontificate and vituperate, as may suit your fancy. The posts are coming thick and strong, so stay tuned
