What a day. We've taxed our news staff to the limit keeping up with all of the news this week. Let us know what you think of Saturday's exhaustive print coverage. I also commend to you our online video coverage of today's events.

I'm still trying to catch up on all of your comments. I expect you'll have plenty more as the days unfold. We will follow every possible lead.

My older sister flies in Saturday for a visit from Tulsa, where she's a longtime teacher. I plan to go ahead with the vacation I had previously scheduled to show her around South Texas. Of course, I'll be checking in regularly on this big story. In the electronic age, you're never too far away.

I know the newsroom will be in the good hands of managing editor Thomas Martinez. If you have any hot tips or comments, please route them first to Tom. I may be slow in responding next week.
