business news in context, analysis with attitude

First of all, thanks to the hundreds of you who emailed us yesterday with your comments (and, thank goodness, praise) for the MNB redesign. This has been a work in progress for some time, and it is gratifying to give birth to it and then have so many of you like it. (One never likes to hear that the baby is ugly…)

Thanks, by the way, to the folks at, who helped to midwife the new design and the changed email system. Couldn’t have done it without them…and they have our appreciation.

Now, we promised you yesterday that there would be “glitches and bumps in the road,” and then we ran into a crater – which ended up delaying the email to some of you until late morning. In the words we learned as a youth:

“Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.”

We think we’ve got many of these bugs worked out, which probably only means that there will be all new ones coming along any minute. But we’ll keep plugging away, and appreciate your patience.
