New Yorker Cartoonist Dies at 68

Miracle of Miracles? My Amazon Rank Drops Over 6.5 Million Places

Looking right at you.
Has Amazon's review ranking seen a glitch? Has the world come to an end? Or a new beginning?

Not long ago, my "New Reviewer Rank" was infamously over 7,000,000. Now, am I eying it at just over 310,000?
