I’d have preferred to remain at brisk.

    Site Meter says I’ve just blown through my high water mark for the past three weeks within the last ten minutes or so, and there’s no top-out in sight yet.

    I want hits; hell, we all do. But this is not quite what any of had in mind…

    Drudge just put a pic of the beheading on his front page (at least when I checked a minute ago at 3pm EDT). Suffice it to say that I did not want to see that at all.

    Thanks for the heads up. I’m at work, so I’d rather not have that on my screen, if you know what I mean.
