On the new Top 9. (sidebar, to the right)
"The Associate Editors of Merriam-Webster's 'Ask the Editor' Segment: Hot or Not?" was added in after, just now. That one was an editorial decision, I stumbled across it and could neither leave it out nor wait for the next Top 9 - ALL the others were from the Random button.
This also marks the first time the official Top 9 has had anything other than eleven (11) posts.
I hope that doesn't become a trend.
