    I know what you mean, Dave. I regret it degrading to that point, too, but ... all I can do is TRY to help strengthen my fellow Democrats and try to keep the focus on the real political battles.

      I don't know what to make of it. Have the better writers left because of the degradation, or has the degradation filled the space left by writers who have moved on?

      Likely a combination of both. I can't help but wonder if the lifting of the one-per-day diary limit hasn't been part of the equation.

      Not necessarily due to increased volume, though I'd love to see statistics in this area, but rather the possibility of diarists not putting as much care into their diaries than they might otherwise, had they been constrained to one-per-day.

      I admit some degree of guilt myself in the latter possibility.

      Somebody has to do something, and it's just incredibly pathetic that it has to be us.
