July 23, 2004
Spent the night at the BBB suite last night. Kathy brought cheese, apples and pears and we munched around. Looked at Tomcat’s Egypt photos. Really incredible stories. They eat camel, etc.

Got into the office this morning at nine. Had a meeting with George Mongon who is the planning and development guy for the Buffalo Billy Historical Center in Cody. He would like us to work with them on various projects and we expressed interest (actually lust) for their incredible photo collection.

Whipped out another five scratchboards. Really rippin’ ‘em out now. Just proofed the next issue’s letters to the editor and it is the best set of letters we have ever run. Really cantankerous, petty, mean, opinionated, stupid and brilliant. It reads, as RG puts it, “like an article.” Makes me very happy.

Got so wound up, forgot to eat lunch (remember kids, work is only work if you’d rather be someplace else.)

Speaking of work, got forwarded this e-mail from our production manager, Robert Ray: "People leave managers not the end, turnover is mostly a manager issue. The effect of poor management is widely felt. When the Web site did its own online survey of 1,118 people, it found that fully half of us working slobs would fire our own bosses if we could. Nearly 30 percent would have their boss seen by a workplace psychologist, but just 23 percent would send their boss for management training. Bad bosses are bad for business.”

Thank God, he’s not talking about me.
