Editor's Note: This is to notify you that this is the Daily Insider Newsletter from Friday, April 18, which we were unable to transmit because of a power failure in New England that shut down Constant Contact, our email newsletter delivery firm. The power was not restored until late Saturday afternoon. We apologize for any inconvenience that this situation may have caused you. Constant Contact has advised us and all its publishing clients that they are instituting new back-up provisions to avoid this situation occurring again. We will be following up this issue with our regularly scheduled April 21 issue of the Daily Insider in about 45 minutes.
