An unusual spike in page view traffic

At 9:55pm, on November 18, 2015, 
the count says 682,684

At 9:45pm, on November 27, 2015, 
the count says 689,612

27 - 18 = 9

689,612 - 682,684 = 6,928

6,928 / 9 = 770 page hits per day, 
for the last 9 days, 
during some of the slowest times of years
a local political/economic blog is read

The average was 574.48 page views per day
on September 4, 2015

The average was 712 per day average
on November 18, 2015

The average was 770 per day average
on November 27, 2015

Some the individual page hit counts were very unusually high;

123 individual page hits; I crashed the Say Yes to Education and Say Yes Guilford meeting at Smith High School and passed out fliers asking the following questions;

107; John Hammer on Mary Vigue and Say Yes to Education and Zack Matheny and Andy Zimmerman's play for tapayer money; Same things only different

457; The City of Greensboro blowing off a legitimate taxpayer inquiry concerning the Rhino Times circulation numbers and links

500; How the Triad Business Journal got played for chumps by Say Yes to Education and Say Yes Guilford

406; Say Yes to Education, Inc. (Say Yes), and Say Yes Guilford appears to be a legal Ponzi scheme and/or a Racket

178; Say Yes to Education Red Flag; Mary Vigue; She is about to be in charge of more than $25 million for a 'non-profit' after shafting City of Greensboro employees out of investment fee cuts

259; Say Hello To Nancy Vaughan's Attourny

111; Greensboro buys a basketball team; How much? It really doesn't matter

If I were a member of the local compromised press
who relatively don't employ investigative journalism,
and lie to the public by omission and otherwise on a regular basis
I would be ashamed of myself for what has taken place in our community
without most knowing what actually happens.

40; on November 18, 2015...

Those who play along and keep their mouths shut
are complicit

If/when the Say Yes story breaks, 
our local press will have missed it,
as it really looks like another outside news source
is going to report it before the News and Record does,
just like the police stats story, again,
as the practice of journalistic malpractice is something of a rule.

This is beyond incompetent.

Say Yes and Say Yes Guilford
appear to be willfully misleading thousands of high school students
and their parents
into believing a four year college education will be paid for
by an entity whose assets are unknown
whose parent organization is supposed to provide $15 million 
over the next few years, 
yet no one knows where it's coming from
even though the News and Record, Guilford County Schools
and the City of Greensboro has endorsed the program.
