According to that indispensable tool of self obsession called Google Analytics, sometime in early September an intrepid South Dakotan, huddled in an undisclosed location in Sioux Falls, made a brave choice and willingly defied the government-imposed embargo on this blog.

I hate to think what might happen to our champion of freedom should she fall into the clutches of ultra-secretive Chairman M. Michael Rounds and his ruthless gang of toughs.

As your state's lone McBoner, you carry a heavy burden, but you've also painted a target on your back. Be careful! You're no use to us dead.
