On the Plane

Everybody's a Blogger

GUATEMALA CITY -- For those interested in more backstage blogs by White House correspondents, there are a few available. The most popular among the White House staff and reporters is at the Houston Chronicle Web site. It is written by Julie Mason, possibly sharpest observer of the weird ways of the bubble. Ken Herman of Cox News, the funniest man at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, is a regular contributor to Window on Washington. Our friends at Time magazine have a White House photo blog with fun pictures from this trip by the super-talented Brooks Kraft. Other colleagues contribute to more general Washington blogs, at publications such as the Wall Street Journal, U.S. News & World Report, Newsweek and the Chicago Tribune; but they're not specific to the White House.

Sorry to see all the crap you get in the comments. I think this sort of arch, frank, behind-the-scenes reporting is exactly what's needed to combat the insane artificiality of these state visits. "Boys on the Bus" and "Fear and Loathing" are, in a similar vein, two of my favorite political books. Keep up the good work.

Bom dia, Peter.

You might want to prod your graphics people to update your map.

You might want to prod your website people to list your blog on the main blogs.washingtonpost.com menu

I mean, your posts are every bit as delicious as the off-the-menu special fajitas at Ninfa's in Waco. But you should be right there on the menu.

Otherwise, nice work, and way to credit some of the other bloggers among your colleagues. Don't forget Mark Silva at the Chicago Tribune's The Swamp blog. He did an astounding job of blogging Vice President Cheney's Asia trip.
