Howdy from the Buckeye State!

A quick hello from Columbus, Ohio.

These past few weeks, I’ve been buried in coal train stories, and I’ve kind of ignored you all. I’m sorry. Here’s the kickoff to the series in case you missed it.

This week, I’m at a cool Kiplinger Program fellowship in public affairs and digital media, so I still won’t be around much. But it’ll be worth it for the both of us: When I’m back with you on April 25, posts and tweets and reports will be better than ever!

Ciao for now.
