Big Labor Keeping An Eye On Their Boy Frank Kratovil

One of the things that fascinates me most about writing for a blog is where your readers come from. One of the analytics packages that Delmarva Dealings subscribes to gives me a nice GoogleMaps mashup with markers of where the last 100 or so readers came from.
