Quantity Over Quality Since 2002

I was a little frightened when I heard that Hendrick Hertzberg was going to be blogging the YearlyKos Convention for The New Yorker. He's a much better writer than I am, and what better way for America's most prestigious weekly to wreak vengeance on The Atlantic for poaching Jeffrey Goldberg than to show me up.

But check out the results: a lousy two posts so far -- that's barely a blog! And that's my commitment to you, the reader. This site's writing may not be the best or the best spelled, but there will always be a lot of it.

UPDATE: Rick, Ezra, and I at lunch:

We're all MacBook users, it turns out.
