Housekeeping!

48 hours and traffic is growing. A belated personal welcome to the new site. Thanks for your comments and keep e-mailing me with your suggestions.  Over the next few weeks, I hope to incorporate as many of them as possible.    Some of you have asked for an easy way to keep track of my posts, something, believe it or not, I had not considered before the new site went live.  We're in the process of figuring out how to do that without changing want we want to do. When I say we, I mean the whole team here -- editorial director Bob Cohn, digital production manager Ben Bradley, digital production analyst Clarissa-Rappoport Hankins and I.  As you might not have noticed, COMMENTS ARE ENABLED. There's a simple, non-intrusive registration process to weed out the orneries.  Please comment! I'll read them and post the best ones.  The Zeitgeist feature on the right-hand side of the page is meant to serve as a dynamic snapshot of the Obama Administration. We're updating the statistics and metrics daily, and we're going to add and subtract them as warranted.  I'm also looking for contributors. If you have a good idea, have some writing experience, and think you share my sensibility, please e-mail me
