It's also generating a lot of comments. As of now, there are 128 comments on the Seattle Times' story thread, meaning it's in a tie for first-place among all T19 comment threads on the new blog.
Also of particular interest, we think, is that the story is generating NEGATIVE attention among some of our reappraising friends and bloggers. The AAC blog, for instance, is reporting that Jim Naughton, the communications director for the Diocese of Washington, and an influential reappraising blogger, is trying to encourage all other Episcopal "Communicators" (i.e. diocesan communications directors) to ignore and not publicize the story. Mind boggling.
We'll pull together a round-up of links to this story from around the blogosphere shortly and add it to this post as an update.
UPDATE: Roundup of links we've seen (only a partial list, I'm sure) is below.

Anyway, all of the links above suggest that Jim Naughton's plan to hide the story isn't going to work. It really is ALL over the blogosphere.
