Dear readers, N4N will be out on a little mini-vacation for the next couple of days. But fear not. A new edition of the Phoenix drops tomorrow. My cover story looks at the winners and losers from the November elections - not the pols, but the interest groups. With a new governor set to take office and a new General Assembly in place, who will triumph? And who will not? Whither gay marriage, education reform, and the labor agenda?
Also, a fun little application of NGrams, the latest nifty Google tool, which allows users to trace the prominence of specific words and phrases over centuries of literature. We use it to answer the age-old question: Del's or coffee milk?
While you wait on that one, here's another - for the more politically inclined.
