We have been talkin' about the name of the State Department's blog, DipNote. There was much consternation. I thought it was OK, particularly given that they made made fun of it themselves. That being said, a DC-based journalism blog, FishbowlDC, today has a top 10 list of rejected State Department blog names.

Touche.
