Why Blogs Matter

If anyone needed an explanation of why blogs matter:

There were reporters that Todd and John Horne trusted to take a shot at the story, but when they found out about the blog and realized that the story could be posted in their own words without worry of information being misconstrued by a reporter, it was clear that they should post it here. The blog also provided moral support and it helped all of us, even the kids, to know that there were people on our side and that people really did care. I can honestly say that this blog and all the people posting positive comments gave Todd the drive he needed to continue fighting, and made his last days hopeful ones.
