Man did he do a terrific job of keeping us informed of all that's been going on with Nady, Marte, and especially with Bay. His new blog is so timely. It's like being outside the room and hearing from decisions makers immediately after they leave the room. As a fan we could not ask for more.

I was thinking too how valuable the technology is today that affords the opportunity to get information so quickly. Keep in mind that DK works for a newspaper.

A big shout out to Dejun for his extra effert in these past few weeks.

The PG has some great beat writers these days. Dejan, Paul Zeis, Ed Bouchette especailly.

Too bad they have only one good sports columnist (Collier). They needs some new blood in their sports opinions.

Really? I find Collier to be unreadable.

DK has been on fire this past week. I absolutely love the blog!

Thanks No. 12!

QFT. As much as I loathe Smizik and marginally dislike Cook, at least I can enjoy their writing while wanting to burn their opinion.

Actually, I've been surprised that I have been agreeing with Cook a lot more than usual lately.

DK is a beat-writing beast! Quite a bit of fun to read, and a wonderful person. His email responses outside the Q&A's are such a delight.

That's funny, I think he's one of the best sports columnists in America, and I've read 'em all.

I don't always agree with him, but I very much enjoy reading him. To me, that's one of the marks of a good writer ... I am compelled to read him even when I don't agree.
