Every year at about this time Sandra and I reflect a bit on how amazing and how wonderful our arrangement is with you folks. You've been feeding, clothing, and housing us for seven years now (I left my day-job at Novell in September of 2004). 

It's hard to believe that it works. Sandra and are thankful for your support, and so is Travis, whose colors have been shining up Schlock Mercenary for two years now. We're especially grateful and humbled in light of the economic difficulty that so many are facing today. Thank you for your custom, and your generosity.

Oh, and thank you for reading. Knowing you're out there laughing is what makes this particular job so rewarding.
