I am not going to bore everyone with a diatribe about the rights and wrongs of blogging etc, but I will say that the blogging community has done wrong to Lloyd Irvin and his family. If you need details please read this post at Bloodyelbow.com The picture above is of AJ Daulerio, he is the editor of Deadspin, probably the biggest sports blog out there right now and the standard for the sports blog industry. Given their status and influence, it would seem that more time and diligence would be put into their work, but it seems that razing a raucous has taken precedence over getting things correct. I would request that you read the post at Bloodyelbow.com and if you feel the need please email AJ and request that an apology be posted on the site. I am pretty sure that when you read about what Irvin's kid has been through you will be more than willing to do so.
