Minding The Store

More

by Patrick Appel

As always, it a pleasure to step in while Andrew gets some much needed rest. Guest-blogging is not all that different than my day-to-day activities on the Dish – 24 of the 50 posts currently on the front page were written by me. All the substantive posts are Andrew's work, but it's my and Chris's job to read through the blogosphere and pick out the choicest bits. Andrew edits, approves, and spins what we find, but the illusion of an all-reading blogger is maintained by employing two extra sets of eyes.

I'll be checking Andrew's general e-mail account this week (andrew@theatlantic.com). We typically get around 450 e-mails a day, but correspondence drops significantly during Andrew's absences. If you want to see an e-mail of yours posted to the Dish, you have a much better chance of not being overlooked if you write this week. 

Andrew will return December 21st.
