Why blogs were created, really

The advantage of blogging in the good old days was you could often get information from trustable people close to the action, without the media filter, and early hyped mis-impressions.

In the case of the Fort Hood shooting, if it turns out that the person who actually brought down Maj. Hasan was not, in fact, Sgt. Kimberley Munley but her partner, Senior Sgt. Mark Todd, you'd have read it first the way I did at Kevin Drum's place Friday morning. Nice scoop, Kevin. Both brave officers, regardless, of course, but credit where credit's due, please.
