Last week's issue was successful in a lot of ways. Not in the money-making kind of way—we lost a fair amount of cash putting that sucker out—but successful in the way that elicits strange and wonderful feedback from the community. Very many readers will be heartened to know we're still publishing Odds & Ends and Ask A Mexican. An equal number of readers will be disheartened to know that we're still publishing Ask A Mexican. Thanks to all our readers who liked the "new design" for its "modern look," but that was a one time deal. Welcome back to the past. The most fascinating response was in regard to a local business reporter who was tipped off that we may have been bought by Albuquerque The Magazine. No, we're still owned by the same guys as always.
A special thanks to Dr. Byron Wall of Cosmetic Dentistry of New Mexico for being super, Larryl Lynch and the rest of the staff at Albuquerque The Magazine. They were not only good sports, they also brought us gifts of real, live goldfish, Goldfish crackers, cupcakes decorated with Swedish Fish and more Fillet-O-Fish sandwiches than we could eat, affording me probably the only opportunity I will ever have to use a Douglas Adams quote literally.
So long, and thanks for all the fish,
