Referrer logs are a great thing: they tell you where people who are reading you have come from. A recent hit pointed me to Wes Meltzer’s “Bloggable” column, which this month includes a reference to my iPod shuffle entry.
Thanks, Wes– though I have to give credit for the line about Carl Van Vechten to The New Yorker critic Alex Ross. I can only aspire to be that clever!
