Editor’s Note: Technical Difficulties

As of Dec. 29, Making Sen$e and the Business Desk are fully functional.

Many of you have undoubtedly noticed our absence on these pages in this last week. No, we haven’t been away on holiday. Rather, technical glitches have kept us from posting our daily web stories, Tool$ and Q&As. Rest assured, we are working full steam ahead on the problem and hope to be back to normal soon.

Starting Monday, we’ll be continuing our posts over on the NewsHour’s Rundown (www.pbs.org/newshour/rundown). Thanks for your continued patience as we sort this out, and as always, your thoughts and comments are not just warmly welcomed, but eagerly encouraged.
