December 6, 2005
Had a staff meeting at 8:30 and a budget meeting at nine. Everything was positive. The press site is working (see front page) and so far we've gotten articles written on our Top Ten Western Towns issue in Pendleton and Cody newspapers. This is all due to customized press releases written by Mark Boardman. We're posting record sales off the web, record ad sales on the next issue (up 27%), record sales in Vegas, a budget that actually balances and allows for growth. As a small business owner, it doesn’t get much better than this.

I got this Email from New York this morning:
Hi, Bob! Well, I'm official, website and all. Go to www.RonSoodalter.com and tell me what you think. I kind of like it. Now I'll have to figure out how to use it! I figure since it took me 42 years to write this book, I'll need another 523 years to catch up with you, and that's only if you stop writing now, which I sincerely hope you won't do! This has been a True East moment.

Finishing up details on the Ben Thompson-King Fisher gunfight copy. Really an intriguing affair. My old friend "Beanie Bob" is working up a 3-D schematic of the theater and we are waiting to see if that is going to work in Classic Gunfights. It should really work if we do it on TV. Robert Ray has been wanting to do 3-D for some time but we never could get Gus to do it. Hopefully, Mr. Steinhilber will come through for us.

Worked on my March editorial, which, so far, is a gushing praisefest for Paul Hutton. I must make it more demeaning and humiliating, but I can’t find a way. I must, I must.
