As of last night, I have officially read every single submission I received. Still, that leaves 142 manuscripts to respond too.  Intern has a busy couple of weeks ahead. 

Of course, Intern won’t be going it completely alone — there are at least 29 responses that I want to write myself.  However, that still leaves 113.  On the plus side that means everyone should have heard something from one of us by the end of the month.  On the negative, all of the 113 (and most of the 29) are rejections.  Man, all of us (you and me both) hate rejections.
