Dear Charles,

Be thou not one of those who laments his meager readership or his relative obscurity. I read you, with great pleasure, each and every day. I'm sure that whoever reads you comes away with the same sense of edification and refreshment.

In short, you're one of the good ones.

"If you can't do it excellently, don't do it at all. Because if you can't do it excellently it won't be profitable or fun, and if you're not in business for fun and profit, what the hell are you doing here?" -- Robert C. Townsend, Further Up The Organization.

It took me three years to roll up the first 6000 on the counter; today, failing to hit 6000 in a week hardly strikes me as failure. :)
