    It gives us another option for travel stories. Unless it is costing you money to run and not bringing anything in I say leave it there.

  • Robb

    It is way too confusing to have all these different columns and newsletters.

  • TonyA_says

    It’s good. Keep it. It saves me from doing my own scan :-)

    I read your site from RSS. It would be nice to have the Scan articles prefixed so I can tell them apart from the Chris Elliot articles. That said, I’ve appreciated a few of the links and vote to keep them up.

    If it isn’t a money drain, leave it. We don’t have to read it if we don’t want to.
