Ordinary and Extraordinary

Rush Limbaugh just had a wonderful monologue about ordinary Americans doing extraordinary things, and framed it in the context of the blogosphere brining down media giant CBS. He also said that the critiques of the blogs right now are very similar to the critiques he faces when he started his show: no checks and balances, no respected reputation, etc.
He said that talk radio and Fox News had their turn and now the bloggers are the focus because "we all take our turns in the criticism carousel of the Left."

Yes, I particularly liked that phrase of his, but on a deeper level, the idea of ordinary Americans who are anonymous because they are not well known (as opposed to being anonymous because they can't be known) and yet still are keeping the country going on a day to day level is quite inspiring.
