Many loyal readers have asked who else is reading this blog. As it turns out, our readership has jumped enormously in recent months with no apparent explanation. We're now getting hundreds of hits per day were it used to be tens of hits per day, and thousands and thousands of hits per month instead of just hundreds or a few thousand. What's most fascinating (beyond an outsize number of hits on posts for say the Yard Butler (726)) is that our France audience seems to be larger than our U.S. audience. Vive Macron!
