Richard, I'd have to vote for Mary Coolidge, hands down for best blogger.

Please take a look at M.C.'s Link: http://www.mccoolidge.com/ and you will see what I mean. M.C. also had a book published titled; "Sense and the City" which is a compilation of some of her best stories when she had a column in the Pelican Press - 'The Reality Chick'... after reading some of them in her archives, you'll understand why I'm promoting her...
