echo "Testing, testing, testing" |/usr/bin/tee -a /var/log/httpd-access.log 
|/usr/bin/logger -t base_http_access /var/log/testing.log

This writes to the httpd-access.log but does not write to 
/var/log/testing.log.  I'm probably reading the man page incorrectly, but I 
thought this should work.  For some reason absolutely nothing is being 
passed from tee to logger.

What am I missing?
