Arianna Huffington eponymous blog is being built by AOL. $315 million for 25 milion visitors/month and a brand name in Political commentary. Applause to Huffington the business tycoon.

Except it does. I adamantly agree with Atrios‘s criticism of the premise of this NY Times article: Columbia Drug Case Isn’t Notable, Except for Address – NYTimes.com.
