Added: (I put this in comments below, but I think it is worth adding up front)
One thing that hasn't been brought up in the rollicking discussion on heraldo is the sheer amount of time that web work can take.
Blogging itself is not a 20-minute a day thing, there's a lot more time that goes into it - and Hank's online work could easily take up his entire day and into the night. we know he monitors the blogs, writes posts, and now apps, and has been a major force in perfecting the Journal's online presence - Plus writing s column, directing reporters, deciding on the content of the paper, approving the layouts, probably some copy editing - it truly is more than a one-man job.
Despite this - admittedly disastrous - interview - lighten up, give it a chance, Tom is a good guy. there are a lot of bugs to work out...
