Welcome to the delayed count, not to blame the Postal System (ya'll are still good and a BARGAIN in my book, but I'll be voting in person...wait, what in the world am I talking about? This has nothing to do with the BOTB results).
Busy week - better late, than never, peeps!
First and foremost, thank you for your response to the question: "Are we definitively accomplishing what we set out to do?" I don't have to agree with anyone, but I do like people who have solid opinions and are not afraid. That wins points in my book. If you are fearless and kind, bam - you're my peeps. And I think you are just that. Danke schoen...I forgot how to make an umlaut, but it's there in spirit.
My opinion, in a nutshell: we've lost our way. I think it's sad and I pray it turns around.
As for our winner?
THE FABULOUS THUNDERBIRDS!! I'm not really surprised but I do confess that I was impressed with the covers. To the victor! Sing us out!
