An Apology to Our Readers

PPPS (Denver & Washington, DC) Some of you may have wondered about the two-month hiatus in stories posted on this site, and a few of you, unfortunately, may have briefly been tweeted to some uncomfortable content during that period. We sincerely apologize.

Beginning in early April, all of our editorial staff and correspondents were posted to London to cover the Royal Wedding. This was the first time that the Pundit Pete Press Service had attempted coverage of such an important international event entirely from a remote location.

and, while at first we suspected that someone on staff may have been responsible, we have since ruled out that possibility, and our IT staff have now successfully blocked the hacker. We continue to vigorously pursue the identity of the hacker(s), including the prospect for prosecution to the fullest extent of the law.

Again, we apologize for any inconvenience to our readers and thank you for your patience.  - The Staff
