This blog is experiencing technical difficulties. Our regular readers may have noticed them since Monday. Pages are taking a long time to load, and behind the scenes, I’ve lost a few handy functions that keep things running smoothly.

Unfortunately this happened the day before election day, when the talented HD Media tech crew was all tied up with making sure that election results were all tallied and published in a timely manner, so it’s taking longer than normal to iron out the problem.

In the meantime, we are posting as we would normally. I want to thank those of you who have had the patience to wait for the pages to load. Hopefully we’ll get this worked out and be back to normal soon. You can expect a regular PopCult post later this afternoon. I just wanted to let you folks know what’s going on.
