So the Commission on Appraisal’s issued its new report, Who’s In Charge Here? The Complex Relationship Between Ministry and Authority. So where, as a responsible and engaged Unitarian Universalist, do you do download the report to read? Download like all the recent reports? Download, even like some pre-Internet reports which have been subsequently scanned? Even the first, from 1936 from the American Unitarian Association. (Worth a read, too.)
Well, you don’t download it. You may buy it, though. It may be read by dozens!
In 2013, the cost of printing is high enough, and the number of PDF-reading devices (good ol’ HTML might be even better) is higher still. And then there’s the budget crisis that, if I recall, recently threatened the running of the Commission on Appraisal itself.
Or perhaps a free PDF is embarged against the sales of a print edition? You think you’d want to warn your buyer/sponsors against the “sucker factor” of simply waiting…
Sonething’s screwy, or ill-conceived.
