It's a hard job, but somebody's gotta be lucky enough to do it. (Photo of me by Zander, who just made the Honor Roll at the University of Wisconsin.)
I have to be off tomorrow (Wednesday), but I'll post more covers on Thursday morning (that was fun, too—thanks to all concerned. Check the comments if you haven't yet).

(And thank you for reading)
(P.S. Only a relatively small percentage of any website's readers ever make any sort of monetary contribution (not including commenting). I don't know the exact percentage here, but it's between .5 and 4 percent. So if you chip in anything, in any way, you're helping out to a disproportionate extent. Even if you don't do your online shopping through this site's links, you should consider doing it through someone's. I can tell you it really does help.)

Byron Annis:"Hey Mike, I read your entertaining blog often and certainly feel that it would be appropriate to make a contribution as a token of appreciation. However, I did send you $50 to help with the purchase of your new house and never received anything resembling a thank-you. As far as I am concerned this was a breach of civility. I'm not going to repeat the mistake."
Mike replies: Byron, I apologize for any breach of civility! I hope you simply missed the thank-you, and that you didn't feel it didn't resemble the grateful response you would have appreciated. Here it is again: "Finally, I Get To Say THANK YOU." I assure you it was heartfelt and very sincere!
Thank you again. And thank you for the opportunity to re-post the thank-you post!
Byron replies to Mike: "Thanks for your response to my comment. No good will be served by any back and forth. I really do admire TOP and visit frequently. To confirm my good faith I've subcribed and hope that your blog will continue to thrive for a very long time."
