Things seen along the road today.

I've read Dooce for a while, but up until recently I had no idea she was such a celebrity (I think it was after the Tsunami when she mentioned she was donating the $1500 she made in a month from the ads on her blog).
This country has a certain celebrity worship culture, but usually these people are products handled by managers and publicity reps. There's this sort of impersonal distance between celebrities and the commoners that idolize them (unless, of course, you're Roy's brother).
When bloggers start getting stalked because of their hit count, I think that reasonable level of insanity has been exceeded.
