This is a smart, eclectic, thoughtful blog -- are you the Todd Mason who works in a new media company based in Virginia? In any case, keep up the good work.
You should do a list of the top must-read ten culture/arts blogs in Washington, D.C. area and/or in the country as a posting.

Is there a contact email for the blog?

Thanks again....

Thanks, Art. No, though, that's not me...I'm one of the two Todd Masons who is professionally a Philadelphia-area-based reporter, which had caused its own minor confusion. I did, however, once live in the NoVA DC 'burbs.
