Quite often while I'm writing a post I'll go down a rabbit hole when I look something up. Today, I was originally using the word "carny" in that mall post to describe the retail clerk, and to be sure I had it spelled correctly I Googled it. Because of that, I stumbled onto this: Diary of a Carny.

Start at the bottom, and you probably won't stop until you work your way up to the last post. It's rough-edged, very interesting, and sharply poignant at times.

One of the things I really enjoy about blogs are that they give everyone a voice. This guy clearly has talent and many stories to tell, but he'd probably never be published in a conventional way, even though what he's writing about is well worth reading.
