Week 2 of this new feature.

Last week’s debut synopsis drew some heavy traffic. We were heartened. We were also struck by a few things as we took the measure of Austin’s blogosphere this week: there was very little high-level content out there. We sifted through a lot of dreadful posts to get to the good stuff {hot links below}. Also, a lot of writers on the sites we read are lazy as Hell. There are a few Austin blogs we perused for this feature who hadn’t updated since SEPTEMBER. They better hope the heartless brutes at Austin Food Blogger’s Alliance don’t find out. Those guys play hardball with their members and if they figure out there’s been some slippage they’ll dust off the truncheons and start cracking skulls.

Eat In Austin went to Milano’s Cafe and raked them over the coals. Something you very rarely read in Austin; a negative review http://eatinaustin.wordpress.com/2010/10/24/milano-cafe/

Jake Camozzi over at Leave Me The Oink ruminates on the changing of the seasons and references Terry Jacks {!} in a poignant turn away from his normal talk of butchery and curing meats http://leavemetheoink.wordpress.com/2012/10/25/the-whole-point-of-living/
