syslog.conf, can you log to console?

Is there a way to point certain syslog apps to log to the console?? I'm sure there is but I can't figure out how. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Umm ... not sure why you should want that ... the point of a log-
file is to be able to check stuff that happened while you were
away from the console. If you don't want to know what's happening
(in other words don't care) why bother logging/displaying in the
first place? If it's just that you want to have a flowing display
... use tail -f ;)
