As you will have noticed if you’ve visited in the past few days, The American Culture has experienced some severe Web problems during the past week. After much investigation and an intensive search for remedies, we’re back online, albeit with just about the simplest publication design possible. We’ll be installing a new look as soon as we’re sure the site has stabilized technically, but in the meantime we hope you’ll keep returning for the same kind of unique reporting and analysis we’ve always provided. We’re also trying to restore a few lost posts and comments, and we hope to have everything shipshape soon.

Welcome back, and please enjoy and be edified by the discussions here. Best, Sam Karnick, Editor, and the American Culture staff
