There are several blank spots in Slugger’s memories. But some have been preserved for posterity at archive.org. From time to time, we’ll fish up some old, otherwise forgotten posts. This one is a short summary of the highly excitable run up to the announcement of the religious demographic figures back of the 2001 Census, just before Christmas 2002. It’s by no means comprehensive, but captures most of the basics.
