Praise for laggardly editors

A very nice note today from an author of an article in Education Policy Analysis Archives:

It's amazing how much faster EPAA gets articles into print compared to paper journals... I have another paper that has been "in press" for well over a year now—and I haven't seen the galleys yet. So—thanks to you, Gene Glass and the EPAA team for creating a real alternative that every journal should emulate.

Aw, shucks. To be honest, I'm not feeling entirely on top of things, but that's because this is definitely a roller-coaster I've jumped on, and it's not going to stop. There are plenty of things I'd like to do better, faster, or more of (and maybe even start on!) with the journal. Thus far, I think I'm doing fairly well to keep up an article-every-two-weeks (or slightly better) average since the beginning of the semester. And I think that'll match the pipeline reasonably well, with maybe a slight break in the summer. Sometimes (as this week, when I'm still behind on grading in classes), I want another dozen or so hours in the week, but it's much better than in the spring.

So, is there such a thing as TMI from a journal editor?
