Houston we have a problem. Our effort to garner readership through an virtual easter egg hunt was an epic fail. Our basket seem to have a hole in it and eggs keep falling out.
The staff and IT department sincerely apologize but we were not able to locate the issue that caused our readers to lose easter eggs from their basket.
So it is not really fair to only allow a few luck people a chance to enter the drawing so we have another solution: allow everyone to enter the drawing today, no eggs required.
