There’s something to that, but I think the editor of ThinkProgress should know as well as anyone that it’s exceedingly difficult to maintain a blog during this December 22 – January 2 period.

If a few people need to be inconvenienced by massive flooding and/or water shortages, I think that’s a small price to pay for the greater good of creating content.
