We have been undergoing severe internet and email problems at American Thinker since Saturday afternoon. As a result, today's article by Rick Moran was posted very late, and we apologize to Rick for that.
Currently, our internet service is intermittent, arbitrarily going off and on with disturbing frequency, making uploading of new material difficult. Even worse, we have received no incoming email since yesterday afternoon. Those who are waiting for a reply to an urgent email may be frustrated, and we are sorry for the inconvenience to contributors and readers.
We are attempting to locate the problem and fix it. It may take some time, unfortunately. Needless to say, these matters usually happen on a holiday weekend, so we cannot be certain when the problem will be resolved.
