Striking a Nerve

I had no idea that my blog entry comparing tsunami relief funds pledged by the US government with the cost of the war in Iraq would become the most popular entry I've ever written -- 23 TrackBacks to date, and traffic on my site yesterday was up 15-fold compared to a typical recent day.

Interestingly, though my friends at Boing Boing linked to my entry, that didn't drive as much traffic to my site as did a mention on USA Today's Website. I wouldn't have predicted that.

Reading through the TrackBacks to my post, only a small number of linking blogs criticize my entry. I'll revisit them and their logic in the near future.
