I’ve been checking in from time to time to see the reaction from the Washington Post article, and it’s been somewhat surreal. The website got about ten times the normal weekday traffic on Sunday, and the previous post which mentioned that I was getting some coverage recorded a record number of comments, many from folks who I would never imagine coming to visit. I’m kind of flooded with emails, one of which was from the producer of the Anderson Cooper 360 show on CNN which I’ll probably connect with when I get back from vacation. Please be patient if you’re one of those folks looking for a response, as I’m still on vacation this week and am trying not to be in front of a keyboard the whole time.
By the way, has anyone seen Fox News recently? I thought the issue of illegal aliens was something they were talking about from time to time. So far I’ve been on the local television affiliates, the regional newspapers, and MSNBC and perhaps CNN. The interest I’m seeing on the illegal alien issue so far has entirely been coming from those whom I would not have expected to pay all that much attention to grass-roots efforts in this area, and those who I would expect would want to do coverage on this have been surprisingly quiet on what’s been happening in Prince William County lately. Chris Plante on WMAL is the only conservative I’ve talked to.
