We have nicknamed our daily tablet edition “the bulldog” as a tip-of-our-hat to that old newspapering tradition of rushing out an edition before the competition. (The term “bulldog edition” may have originated more than a century ago in New York City during an intensely competitive time for newspapers, although there is some uncertainty about this. We do know Citizen Kane tells his wife, “The bulldog’s just gone to press.” To which she replies, “Well, hurray for the bulldog.”)

Hurray for the bulldog, indeed.
