Great post at Small Dead Animals

Kate at Small Dead Animals blogged yesterday about "Anti-Semitism, Overt and Covert." Her topic is timely, the message important and profound, but she communicated it by an effective technique of interlacing public news with a private conversation with a friend.

I'm not going to quote it, because it's only by reading the whole thing that you catch the rising tension as the two stories tighten around each other.

Good blogging is ultimately good writing, but I love to see the genre develop, as people find new ways to make the universal particular and the particular universal.
