WOW!: Topped 200 hits yesterday, and even got my first real fan mail (from Hilda Hartling, who shares my dislike of vast tracts of italics). Interestingly, more of the referrals are coming from Stephen Green than Glenn Reynolds, even though the latter no doubt has much more traffic-- lending credence to the Eric Olsen Rule of Links: a short and vague item yields more clicks than a long and detailed one. (Glenn excerpted a highlight and discussed the topic at length, while Stephen just said "John Tabin gets it, too.")
