This is something of a bittersweet post. Eric Dienstfrey, my relentlessly hard working number two here at Pollster.com, will be moving on to bigger and better things in the fall. He has been accepted into the Graduate Program in Film Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Department of Communication Arts. Congratulations Eric!
