— From the NBC Political Unit and authors of First Read:
After three days in our new format, we want to thank all of those who have taken the time to check out First Read and post comments on the blog. We appreciate them all, complimentary or not. And for those of you who are offering suggestions about ways to further tweak and improve the product -- yes, we are reading them and factoring some of them into our ongoing plans for this page. As instantaneous as news delivery on the web can be, careful web design takes a little longer. This new page and our revamped politics site are the result of a lot of time and effort put in by a lot of patient people. So keep reading and commenting and perhaps you'll see more changes in the future.
On this day in particular, travel safely, wherever you're heading. Cheers.
