Nice Job, Posties

Len Downie sent out the following internal email to Posties last night:

    I want to thank everyone who worked so long and well this week to produce our outstanding coverage of the elections both in the newspaper and on washingtonpost.com . I have not seen better anywhere. Both sales of the newspaper and readership of the web site increased significantly over the past three days. This is and will remain a core franchise of The Washington Post as we continue to reshape the newsroom and the newspaper. We have already started to make certain that we dominate political coverage nationally and locally thoughout the new two-year election cycle.
