Wow. Scott Horton is planning to hang it up. Is expert blogging a deadender?

Personally, I think blog items from people like Scott Horton (or Paul Krugman) are extremely valuable - Scott, in particular has fleshed out the corruption and illegality of the Justice Department in a way that ordinary people can understand. The blogosphere would lose a great deal if we were to lose Mr. Horton, and I sincerely hope we do not lose his insight and perspective.

Yet, as he notes, blogging (and doing it well, like he has done) is VERY HARD WORK.

What do you, dear reader, think?
