Yahoo Blog Search implementation is very odd!

I was jolted this morning when I realized that although Yahoo is including blogs in their regular news search be it in the margin, that I thought they had a direct way to get blog only results. Thier implementation is really weird, and you will see what I am talking about in the next paragraph. Unless I am missing something, what they have done here is horrible.

Click this link http://blog.news.search.yahoo.com/blog/search?p=geek news and see what results you get, and then go to this link http://blog.news.search.yahoo.com and you will see it re-directs to thier main news search page, search for Geek News, you end up with two separate sets of search results.

So unless I am missing something big here were is the direct link to this Blog search page? Really poor implementation unless I am just totally missing something.
