Unwrapping The Wrap

The Best of the Dish Today” is fantastic – far more practical (for you and for me) than the previous daily wrap.

Another:

So, you’ve rechristened The Daily Wrap as “The Best Of The Dish Today.” The daily summary is now shorter (thank you), but the new name is twice as long. Forgive me for saying the new name has the style of an ethnic restaurant menu written by a non-native speaker.

How about something simple, such as “Today’s Best Dish”?

Heh. I think I was unconsciously channeling the WSJ’s long-standing feature, “The Best Of The Web Today.” Let me toss it around in what’s left of my brain for a bit. But thanks for the general encouragement.

Thanks too for the response to my latest pitch for subscriptions. We had a surge. For the almost 23,000 of you have clicked through your maximum read-ons, I know it seems like a pain if you’re at work, busy, and the credit card isn’t easily available.

But this Friday afternoon, please ask yourself if what we provide every day is worth $1.99 to you a month. If it is, please support online journalism free of government or corporate pressure, but exclusively answerable to you, the reader. It keeps us honest; and if it catches on, will keep more media companies honest. The more you give, the more we’ll do. After 13 years of daily blogging – and providing up to 240 posts a week is grueling work – we hope we’ve proved we’re here to stay.
