I saw an article referenced on the Wall Street Journal's webpage and found the analysis to be interesting (but that may be because I am a dork). Basically, they use the frequency each columnist uses specific, unique words and then apply that to individual columns to see if they can determine the author of the different columns.

I think the most interesting part was the list of the top words and adjectives/adverbs used by each author.

Ooh, nice to be back in the saddle after some financial troubles forced comics on the chopping block again. In some ways, the weekly pickups are still limited, but this is really the best week to start up again, as Blackest Night #7 ships next week.
