The Associated Press asked us about preemption, which resulted in our little blog being mentioned first on the AP newswire and then . . . everywhere!

We extend a warm welcome to our new visitors from the print or on-line editions of papers ranging from the Chicago Tribune, the Houston Chronicle, Newsday, and the Minneapolis Star Tribune to the Bismarck Tribune and the Herald & Review — and scores of others too numerous to mention.

Welcome aboard!

We’re glad you came to visit, and we hope we don’t disappoint.
