My embarrassment of riches begins with Ellen, Martha and Fritz, then moves pretty quickly to covering the news and the technology that has put us back in that game — at all hours, as last night, with video even. Blogging wouldn’t be nearly so much fun without my co-conspirators, the 2,500 or so who are registered commenters on the Arkansas Blog and the thousands (130,000 unique visitors in October) who are just drive-by participants. Thanks. Let’s eat.
