I saw Heraldo’s post about the WordPress stats and realized that email I’d automatically deleted had some fun stuff in it.

Look, my blogging is sporadic and rarely addresses the insta-draw of local politics, so the fact that anyone reads this stuff I spew out for primarily myself (spewing preferable to a stay at Semper Virens) amazes me.

In any case, looks like love for the NCJ drew the most interest. As it should be.
