"To injure no man, but to bless all mankind."

The Boston Globe‘s Donovan Slack reports that the Christian Science church is looking to cut costs. That might mean changes at the Christian Science Monitor.

Check out this interesting factoid:

The online edition records 4 million unique site visits per month, while the print edition, published five days a week, has about 70,000 subscribers.

Just 70,000 print subscribers! That’s really surprising. I knew the CSM was a small paper, but I didn’t think it was that small.

The Globe article says the church subsidizes the newspaper to the tune of about $20-million a year.

Here’s a page explaining the paper’s origin and purpose, from csmonitor.com.

And here’s a rather compelling statement regarding “The Monitor Difference.”

In related news, doesn’t “Donovan Slack” sound like the name of a character from a Harry Potter book? What a great byline.
