The email in-tray has been overwhelming of late and I've just been unable to read and respond to anything like the number I have done in the past. It's running at over 400 a day, which is just physically impossible to absorb on a book tour. But I finally got home tonight, and so I'll have more time now. And today, I had lunch with my editor, and they're getting me an assistant/intern to help. I hate to think I'm missing huge chunks of your feedback because I just can't manage it. But that will change soon. And we're planning several other innovations to cope with the growth of the blog's readership this year - and to have more fun with it. Stay tuned.

(This original post said I was getting over 800 emails a day. I guess that's what it feels like. But I counted. It's only around 400 - 500. High political season.)
