Smart Readers

From liberal blogger Atrios, on the whole flap over Barack Obama appearing at an event with an outspoken anti-gay performer and then failing to respond with any real criticisms of homophobia:

One thing you learn very quickly when you blog is that no matter how smart and knowledgeable you are (or imagine yourself to be), some of your readers are going to be smarter than you, and literally every one of your readers knows more than you do about something. It's humbling at first, but then quite liberating.

So congratulate yourselves. Whatever Bobo may say about the profanity or comedic pacing or realism or musical phrasing of a particular production, there will always be others out there (Screwtape, where have you gone?) who know more.

It's good to be missed.
