God bless Google. They played hard to get for a week or so, but they came through.
Someone named Robin at Blogger replied to my increasingly frantic emails. She (he?) found the archives. And brought them all back to life.
I didn't realize how much I missed these archives (blow-by-blows of Barack's primary, the '04 presidential primaries, the '05 session) until I got them all back.
I'd buy Google stock if I could.
Thank you Robin. Thank you everyone who cared about these archives and the blog.
I sacrified the 5 posts I had on the new blog, so I'll try to restart the conversation on keeping the mansion blue in 2006.
