Request: Any and All Tips About Romania

Hey kids, Matt Welch here. I have a shameless request/question: Emmanuelle and I are heading to Romania from June 7 to June 28 on a reporting trip, and, well, what do we need to know? (Aside from "watch out for the kidney-stealers.") I've never been, and am generally clueless ... any must-sees or must-avoids? Do any of you live near? Will Dracula "get" us? We hope to visit Carabia, and the Black Sea, and Bucharest, and that replica of the South Fork ranch from "Dallas," and so on. Suggestions may be rewarded by obscure booze products.

Henry Copeland's in CBS MarketWatch

In this CBS MarketWatch report, Henry Copeland's informal research reveals "Who are blog readers?"

BLOG READERS, WHO ARE THEY?

Who's reading those millions of blogs? Henry Copeland, founder of Blogads, wanted to know, for obvious reasons. He wants to be able to tell advertisers using his network of Weblogs who's reading them. Last week, he used SurveyMonkey to collect information. Here's what he found: 61 percent of the responding blog readers were over 30 years old, 75 percent make more than $45,000 a year, 79 percent are male, and half of them have contributed more than $50 to a cause or candidate. Copeland makes no claim that his research is thorough or even reliable. Responses came from 17,000 volunteers. Nonetheless, "I conclude that blog readers are, themselves, a distinct and important new demographic cohort: blog
readers."
The survey results.
