RedTape_6.17.jpgBob Sullivan‘s msnbc.com blog “The Red Tape Chronicles” hit a milestone this week: its 100,000th reader comment.

“Red Tape” is touching a nerve with millions of Americans because of the dismal economy. Sullivan offers readers ways to avoid scams, protect their identities, and in the process save thousands of dollars.

“The following that Bob has built since ‘Red Tape Chronicles’ made its debut late in 2005 is attributable to one thing: He provides his readers with critical information that can either spare them considerable grief or help them out of a bad situation,” said msnbc.com projects editor Michael Brunker.
