Although the anniversary post was intended to inspire amusing emails from celebrities, which a few people realized, it's most gratifying to also receive your kind words. In fact, I was so touched, I was crying all over the manuscripts on my desk, and had to trash them. It's nice to know that my efforts are appreciated.
Yours are as well. You don't have to provide helpful insights and advice to your fellow minions, or subject yourselves to comments that may occasionally seem evil. Without contributors, and commenters and lurking readers, this wouldn't work. As long as you guys keep coming back, I'll keep it going.
