SLATE ACQUIRED....The Washington Post Co. is buying Slate. This isn't unexpected, but I felt a slight chill at this statement:

Ann McDaniel, a Post Co. vice president, said: "Our goal is not to in any way change Slate. We think it's important that it keep its personality."

This kind of statement following an acquisition is usually a prelude to massive changes and/or complete destruction of the acquired property. I hope this will be the exception that proves the rule.
