A Letter-to-the-Editor published in today's New York Times:
Thanks to you all, this blog continues to set new records for readership and comments. Over the last week, for example, I've approved approximately 3,310 comments.

I vowed to my wife last year that I'd get on a schedule of four fundraising drives per year. As usual, though, I'd rather blog for you than deal with workaday issues, so it took me until May to get the first one off the ground for 2014. I want to thank everybody who made... Read More
