One of the things that drew Mr President to blogging was the idea that he could actually influence others. Being read is one thing, but we’ve all read things only to come away no different to when we sat down to read it. Persuading others is his entire raison d’etre, it is why he became a lawyer.

Regular readers will have seen that he often plugs the Mystery Topic Challenge, hoping, seemingly in vain, to persuade all of you that don’t already to take part in it.

So why not follow her example and take part? You’ve got to be in it to win it.
