Fishing in a Dry Wash




Graphics -- The set-up has one of the better color combos of any blogs around. The nifty rustic 'woodwork' sidebar shows the pains taken for a feature that's a constant. The archive platoon spoils the view, though.

Content -- Lists the blogger's shrink could look into, essays on nature, religion, name-calling, parenting, all-in-a-day tidbits --inlaid with irony, which makes this not a boring blog.

Random stabs at fiction (showing potential, and he has the writer's neuroses to prove it) and cozy family pics round off the menu.

Recommend -- this blog as a demo on the right mix of spontaniety and craft. But then again, you either have it or you don't, Prozac or no Prozac.

Some longish paragraphs could be broken up with graphics.

Ratin -- 9.0

Ladies,

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I have never received criticism that made me feel so good. I really expected to be torn apart. It's great to know one's thoughts and flaws are interesting to someone else.

Thank you, from the bottom of my neurotic and simple curmudgeon writer's heart.
