Tom Sawyer's Got Nothing on Him

Ta-Nehisi Coates had a bad moment earlier today. He found out one of the hidden costs of blogging for The Man. He was directed to … write a mission statement for his blog.

Can you imagine.

Pretending for a moment that I would ever be good enough that The Atlantic would pay me to blog, I'm sure I would have blown the job right there. However, Ta-Nehisi kept his cool and came up with the brilliant idea of challenging his commenters to see who could write the best one.

Smartest move since Google came up with Image Labeler.
