Just a quick one tonight.
Wanted to say a special thank-you to the folks who have done the heavy lifting on the blog this week... and it ain't me.
First, a serious thank you to Matt Spence, who had the idea to do the short-burst back-and-forth Into the Echo Chambers. They've been fun, and I only dropped the ball once. Looking forward to seeing how we do when the Democrats start in a week or so.
I would especially like to thank my friend Mo Eppley for her wonderful photographs she took from behind the scenes at the Convention. I told her this, and I'll tell you: that's some of the best stuff that's been on this blog, ever. I know she had a job to do there, so taking pictures for this blog was just an extra thing I had her do -- from my view, it was worth it. I enjoyed those pictures an awful lot, and I really hope you did, too. Thanks, Mo.
Thanks finally to you. I've had a huge spike in readership in the last week, and it is thanks to the folks above, Laura Jane, who in recent weeks has written some popular posts as well. But mostly it is because of you and your loyal readership, for which I am grateful.
Thank you. Have a safe and enjoyable Labor Day.

It's finally Friday.
