Senator Claire McCaskill

(via Noel Hidalgo) Perhaps a good way to think about Tumblr, if you're not familiar with it, is as what the offspring of a mating of Twitter and Blogger would look like -- a running stream of photos, videos, quick links, thoughts, and musings.

Here's that darned spinach recipe.
