I feel that one of the purposes of this blog is to keep an eye on the Burghosphere. It is with that goal in mind that I bring you this horrific news. The Carbolic Smoke Ball is gone after the passing of it pseudonymous author. This is a bigger blow then people think, the blog was not JUST funny. In a city known, like it or not, for its ignorance, the CSB showed how our citizens have a deep knowledge and understanding of local and national happenings, you have to understand something thoroughly to make light of it.
In happier Burghosphere, Bob Mayo has decided to continue on blogging, after apparently questioning whether it was a good idea. This doesn't cure all that ails me after the departure of one of my favorite blogs (CSB) but it at least makes it more tolerable.
