I have no idea who "gace" is, but BOR says a lot of stuff. I have found that ignoring his bloviations altogether has not impoverished my life. In fact, I feel like I get a little smarter every day by simply not watching his "I'm so much smarter than you are, so let me tell you what to think" segment -- I think he calls it his "talking points."
FR is not a blog, but I still consider it part of the "blogosphere." Blog posts show up here. From here, they show up on other blogs. It's part of the dialogue, part of the flow.
