Only the Blog Knows Brooklyn
We have to give a big shout out to our friends at OTBKB. Being aware that “Specialness” is a syndrome that affects Brooklynites at a particularly high level, they featured us last week and helped spread the gospel of mediocrity.
OTBKB is a blog that covers “hyper-local” Brooklyn–the arts, politics, urban planning, parenting and on-the-spot news, edited with pizazz by Louise Crawford. While its focus is the local, there are pieces that take on the broader world too; for example, this excellent write up of Reverend Daniel Meeter’s new ebook “Why Be a Christian (If No One Goes to Hell?). I first met Rev. Meeter during the heady Howard Dean campaign days. He talks about religion in terms of compassion, mutual respect, and the increase of civil/human rights. Imagine that Mr. Ralph Reed!
We strongly recommend a trip to this great and diverse blog. Then, once you’ve learned about all the amazing, cultural, active things going on in Brooklyn, and you feel completely overwhelmed that you should’ve created/planned/or at least attended them–hence decide to crawl back into bed, come back and see us!
