Karen Solem, Founder and Publisher surprised us: "Sure, what information would you like?"She even sounded like she worked for a government agency, from a neat oak desk, in a row of other neat desks in some big government building (funny thing: she actually does work for the U.S. Government in the largest statistics producing Department in the world).
