Some comments from a readership survey:

"I keep coming back because I like the intelligent articles that are both concise and precise. Your writers also gather information from a range of individuals/groups, and the result is always good objective factual analysis. Also, you pages are very up to date and I appreciate the real time factor."

"This is a great site - well laid out and very informative"

"Keeps me in touch with what's happening. I have your site as my opening home page so when I log in each day; it's the first thing I see. Starts the day off in the right fashion"
