Bloggers Claim Credit for Bringing Down Sun By Scott Ott: Writers of weblogs throughout the “blogosphere” last night posted items bragging about the latest demonstration of the so-called power of blogging.

Having attributed the fall of Sen. Trent Lott, and New York Times editors Howell Raines and Gerald Boyd to persistent badgering in the blogosphere, the writers yesterday took credit for bringing down the sun.

A spokesman for the flaming orb at the center of the solar system denied that bloggers had anything to do with the sun’s disappearance late yesterday. He insisted, “The sun will come out tomorrow. Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow there’ll be sun.”

Sure enough, the sun slowly appeared this morning from below the horizon. An unnamed blogger said this morning’s rising of the sun did not disprove the power of blogging.

“Think of all the other stars that fell last night, never to rise again,” said the blogger. “Who do you think caused that? Heh.”
