A few people asked me if I saw this week's article about Mars Hill in The Seattle Times. I used to go there and I was at one point a journalism student. I have been asked,implicitly, if I have thoughts about the article. I read it over and having been, well, anyway I know a puff piece when I read one. So there's nothing particularly bursting forth within my bosom about the article itself.

No, dear reader, I direct your attention to the Associated Press regurgitation and streamlining of the original article. Go read the original and then read the AP version. The differences are obvious enough but they defy expression in mere words. I could blankly describe the differences but you have to go see for yourself! Or not. Carry on.
