    The ‘Lawyers, Guns, and Money’ blog that you linked to starts with this:

    “I’m sure that most of you have read Simon van Zuylen-Wood’s New York profile of Glenn Greenwald’s opposition to the Russia investigation that Paul referenced below. A lot of what follows has already been covered in that comment thread, but I thought it was worth posting some additional thoughts to the front page. I also strongly recommend Marcy Wheeler’s response to that piece in the New Republic, which riffs on the fact that the original article did not include any female voices, despite the fact that van Zuylen-Wood interviewed several female subject-area experts.”

    But I haven’t read the New York profile. The entire above paragraph reads like gibberish to me – although i know it makes perfect sense to someone who’s not me. The LG&M article is incomprehensible for a lay reader, so to speak. Every sentence assumes you know the entire ‘story so far’. As I followed several of the links, I realized I don’t know who ‘Glenn Greenwald’ is, nor anything else about this whole affair, whatever it is.

    OK: I’m ignorant, or I don’t keep up, even though I read the NY Times daily and follow your blog and several other progressive blogs on a daily basis. But really, I ask you not to give us links “for you” that are so self-involved that amateur politics junkies cannot really enter without a graduate-level course in the entire issue at hand. Most of your links are far more skillfully written for the general reader, which is why I so appreciate the effort you put into your daily posts.
