Clarke: Glitches with new Web site
Placeholder Image

Thank you for your overwhelming support of our new Web site,, which launched Wednesday. Your reaction has been overwhelmingly positive. A few of you made some suggestions, and we’re considering them all.

As you might expect, launching an endeavor as large as our new site inevitably hits a few bumps in the road. So many of you came to the site Wednesday morning that our server crashed. As a result, some of you may have noticed the site moving slowly early in the day. Please bear with us as we work through these technical issues.

We are committed to delivering high-quality, in-depth and accurate news and information both online and in our print edition. As always, I welcome your comments and suggestions. Please send them to
