We've been having some technical problems on-and-off today with the blog, both the ability to post and the ability for people to access it. Our apologies.
Why the problems? Two things: Drudge and Batman.
Drudge prominently linked today to a posting from our sister paper LA Weekly about the looming sellouts for Batman: The Dark Knight.
Batman fans surged to the site, leaving the rest of us struggling.
Things should be better now.
