Blinq: Easier to read than Arianna Huffington.

Ran the blog through the Gunning -Fog readability test. The result: If you got through most of eighth grade, Blinq should be a breeze to understand. It's somewhere between the New York Post's Page 6 and Liz Smith for simplicity of style. Why aren't I happier?

My blog checked in at 7.7. I'm a grade above T.V. Guide, The Bible, and Mark Twain; a grade below Reader's Digest and most popular novels??

Old Testament or New? Traditional half-size TV Guide or new and improved full size?...Adventures of Huckle Finn or Life on the Mississippi?

I need details! Poor Mark Twain!
