9/11 fell the day before debate night, and the campaigns were scrambling to make up for it. Instead of the usual day-before email blasts, they had to pile them all onto that Thursday, and then the weekend had a looming MID-MONTH DEADLINE just before the FEC END OF QUARTER DEADLINE!

Week 13 marks the 100th post on But Their Emails! I need to give huge kudos to Tirra, who designed my logo and managed to pull it straight out of my brain, and BroadCityChessClub who suggested the name.
