Glad to have been of some service…

One of my first assumptions in setting up Slugger, was that if we made intelligent choices about what we blogged, we’d attract an intelligent audience, draw in more intelligence and, ultimately, be of use to unknown others. It happens all the time, though we rarely call attention to it. On Monday a 2003 UNESCO report was sent in by reader Nevin and was quickly blogged and quoted from by Pete on Monday, and by Wednesday the same document with the same quotation shows up in a Sinn Fein press release. All we can say is: glad to have been of some public service…
