Just asking: Where’s Slate’s search engine?

slateA Romenesko reader writes: “Has is it been noted that Slate’s recent redesign seems to have eliminated the search feature?”

I asked Slate editor David Plotz about this and he tells Romenesko readers: “Yes, coming back shortly. Our old search was essentially busted, so we pulled it down, and are launching a new, much better search in a couple/few weeks.”
