Editor's Note: This Space to Let

Jul 23, 2010, 23:04 (0 Talkback[s])
(Other stories by Carla Schroder)

by Carla Schroder
Managing Editor

I keep a little notebook with article and editorial ideas, and there isn't one single idea that struck me as worth writing an Editor's Note about. So rather than blather on aimlessly just to fill space, I am going highlight a few recent stories that I think are worth an extra mention. Of course this is not every story that I enjoyed or felt was extra-special, because there are always a lot of those. Feel free to post any you think are worthy of a special mention.
