Thank you for mentioning my adopted home park, Silver Dollar City!!! They do have a wonderful Christmas festival, which I hope to be attending again in about two weeks.

And kudos on your ever growing popularity and notoriety, Mr. Niles. Someday soon I will be saying, "I knew him when...."

Nice job... This should drive up the web traffic for a few days..

Actually, I'd bet that we sent more traffic to USAT than the other way around. When I worked at the Los Angeles Times, I saw how much traffic Theme Park Insider would drive back to the LAT when I linked from here to the reviews I wrote for the Times. It was more than I ever saw coming back from links to TPI from other newspapers.

Basically, newspaper website readers rarely click links inside articles. Links from non-newspaper websites really do help increase traffic, though.
