Seems that our poll (see left-hand column) about federal responsiveness to Hurricane Katrina has attracted two people at the extremes, one voting hundreds of times for "inspires confidence," the other voting almost as much for "embarrassing." Given this kind of ballot stuffing (and we know it's most likely two individuals since it all happened in a very short time span), the poll is now meaningless, so we'll be taking it down. We'll have a new poll up in the not-too-distant future. And maybe we'll figure out some way to limit everyone to one vote. You know, when they said "Vote early, vote often," they weren't talking about tp.com.
Before blogging became all the rage, Tom was posting book reviews and Observations (essentially early blog posts) to this site. You can find the archives below.
