at some point the NYT online linked this blog to its kazakhstan news page through a blogrunner feed. usually when i post about kazakhstan, a link often appears under the "headlines around the web" heading in the middle of the that page. it's not a bad idea. i think this blog only makes the cut for the kaz page because so few people are writing in english about that place. also, it seems to be an automated system, because i doubt if they would have lined to this post if anyone were reading its content.
