Let it not be said that Slugger is not gracious. I was one one of many who expressed skepticism at Daily Ireland’s recent circulation claims. It is therefore only right to congratulate all concerned as ABC today have approved the figure announced a few days ago by the publisher. Of course were one minded to nitpick one could point out the contribution made by bulk sales to achieving five figures, or to the decidely earthbound monthly trend. But that would be churlish.
