    I heard after Hurr. Sandy that DK had to move its office of operations out of NYC.   Who works there?  Are there paid diarists as well as the folks who write because they have something to say?  

    I'm mostly curious because I'm fairly new - brought here by the Wisconsin recalls.  As a result, I donated to individual candidates, knew the name of more Wisc. state reps than in my own state.  

    I'm just curious about how it all works.   It's become my main news source and I know less about it than my city's newspaper which I cancelled because it didn't cover the recalls.
