This has been an educational week for me. I learned by checking our website's stats, for example, that our readers are fascinated by our report that the La Cañada electorate is becoming less Republican ("City inches toward the left," first published in print and online Oct. 28).
Of course I have no way of knowing whether it's Democrats who boosted that story's popularity by gleefully sharing it with friends, or if instead, the local GOP members thought they should spread the alert that left-leaning people have been moving into town. ("Hide the silver, Patricia, some scary-looking people have set up camp next-door!").
Truth be told, the political and philosophical leanings of the people reading us don't matter to me, as long as everyone finds something of interest that keeps them coming back for more. Now, if we could just convince more of you to write letters to the editor, I'd believe some kind of miracle had taken place, and I would be downright ecstatic.
