In my old age I've mellowed from my sometime strident anti-theism to an acknowledgement that some people need to have "spiritual experiences". So when I ran across the Real Live Preacher I was kinda fascinated by someone sincere, with whome I could relate, but who definitely needed to seek the spirituality. I've also been hearing the buzz about Christopher Lydon, so when Mark pointed to an MP3 of a Christopher Lydon interview with the Real Live Preacher I had to go listen.

I don't think there's anything there you won't get from a few minutes poking around Real Live Preacher, but having heard the word in use, I'm now more convinced than ever that there should be immediate and serious consequences to anyone using the word "blogosphere", and I'm also convinced that when anyone refers to themselves as being part of it, the "l" should be silent.

After reading your bit above about the seybold conference, I've gotta say I got the same impression upon hearing Chris Lyndon's voice. "Blogosphere" only helped.
