A quick personal note, before turning this over. I had to drop my e-mail, because it was over-spammed. It's a temporary measure. There are people, whom I greatly appreciate, who used e-mail to correct grammar errors and now can't. I'm really sorry about that, and hope to have it fixed soon.


In the meantime, please don't send notes to my colleagues. James Fallows is a compassionate dude, but he isn't my personal assistant. (I'm more like his.)

Between twitter and the comments section, I think I'm pretty accessible. I'll have e-mail back soon. If this isn't enough, PM me on twitter. I'll gladly hand over my gmail. 

Otherwise, it's yours...
