It’s occurred to me as I wait for the coffee to brew out here in the pre-dawn darkness of the West Coast, that perhaps instead of letting East Coast peeps find something else to read until I figure out what to write about first, I should ask what you would like to see addressed. Any stories out there that jump out at you, particularly those that I might have missed in my perusal of the standard news sites?

Let me know in the comment thread, and if this is successful, perhaps it can become a regular feature.
