I Get Press Releases

Whenever I write a post, as I did recently, noting that I get an immense amount of email, some people inevitably misinterpret it as a complaint. It isn't, mostly, although certainly some kinds of email annoy me. But even if you took away all of those in the category of "annoying," I would still get an immense amount of email. The point is that it's just something which comes with the territory. It's an unavoidable part of having a blog with a decent-sized readership. Blogger beware. Having said that, I always appreciate people who send me interesting stuff. Those are rarely in the category of annoying, unless they're accompanied with "WHY AREN'T YOU POSTING ABOUT THIS?!?!?!" kind of remarks.

I just got a press release from the office of the ambassador from a certain country informing me that all of their diplomatic vehicles will now be hybrid-electric ones.

Just part of my day...
