Before There Was a Crunchy, or a Contra...

When I tell people I started a blog in 1999, they laugh. When I tell them the URL was, they realize I wasn't kidding. I registered the domain for the first time in 1998, and while I had some of the right ideas, I always tried to turn it into a magazine, thinking that there was no way anyone would ever be interested in the solitary and eccentric ramblings of a lone crank slowly falling off his barstool.

Fortunately, unlike real estate, domains are cheap to hang onto, and I never needed the money bad enough to sell the name, so I am pleased to announce that in the ugly aftermath of Iowa '08, the SNOB is hereby back on the air.
