Those of you from out of town may be familiar with Eric Black only because we've had an awful lot of fun with his choice of followup gig. But seriously, in the past, Black has articulated his desire to find the "sweet spot" between the professionalism and resources of legacy journalism and the immediacy of blogging. And then he promptly abandoned that desire and signed on to mentor a bunch of paid propaganda pooper-outers.
But if Eric is still interested in finding that "sweet spot," he may want to take a look at Sisyphus' last open thread for a glimpse of what that rarefied thing might look like. It doesn't get any sweeter than that.
Kindly pass that link along to Mr. Black if you please, Mitch.
