    noticed how slow it has been in the mornings?

    I wish I could edit comments because I see I should have written "Do Jotter's summaries ..." not Does.  original I was just going to mention one of them. My fingers type on cruise control while my thoughts are already racing several sentences ahead.

      We may have more "active" accounts, but we seem to have less activity. Strange how that's worked.

      I'm a Vietnam Era vet. I'm also an Erma Bombeck Era vet. When cussing me out and calling me names please indicate which vet you would like to respond to your world changing thoughts.

        participating. I have no idea how many page reads we've been getting. I wrote to jotter and volunteered to run the count applications and plot out the daily totals and some sample days by some interval like say 10 minutes, so people could get a better idea of when it makes most sense to post.

        I was talking with one of our old time writers last night who referred to a wonderful post he did 2 years ago, that is still relevant to a current topic so I encouraged him to repost it. He said "why bother," noting his original received zero recs!  And, it was well written, with photos on an issue relevant to the long term survival of hundreds of millions of people in third world countries.

        Not good. After a week, every person here has an unlimited supply of tips and recs. We should strive for a more generous and nurturing culture to replace this Scourge-like Paul Ryan austerity philosophy too many people have sunk to here.

    •  Yes, slow, I miss some of my favorite writers (5+ / 0-)

      You and Bobswern seem to be holding the Fort for the Left. Maybe "the Left" are away meditating on the taunt from the owner "why are you here?"

      I read Salon.com, the first blog I ever joined, in the morning. They've now got Thomas Frank as a writer. He was a writer from Harper's.

      Thanks for writing HoundDog.

      To thine ownself be true
