Flameout of the week

Scott over at Thinking Rocks Hard is a young Briton who started his blog with the benefit of an announcement on a fairly major blog. I think I discovered it via The Commissar, either through him or via someone on his blogroll. Anyway, young Scott introduced himself as the 500,000th most intelligent person in the world, posted a couple or three posts about how patriotism is a prehistoric atavism, and hasn't surfaced since mid-December. Getting mentions from Kevin McGehee and OutsideTheBeltway ought to have been an encouragement to continue. Maybe he's so smart that he saw what a time sink blogging can be, and decided to quit early.
