Press Release Champs

Here’s to the folks who work overtime to dispel the notion of a slow news day. (Like, say, today.)

Over the past month, the Queens Chronicle has collected every e mail and fax sent by Queens representatives at all levels of government: city, state and federal. The paper tabulated the total number of communications and [John] Liu came out ahead by a large margin.

The highly scientific results:
