May 28, 2008
Another day spent at the Arizona Heart Institute. Need another test. Sigh. This one is nuclear, not sure exactly what it does, but nuclear is in the title.

News From The Front Lines
Both Bonnie and I had voice mail messages this morning from a new subscriber, Laura Nelson, who wanted to tell us how she subscribed to the mag cause she loves the Old West stuff and that it is a very beautiful and great magazine. But she called to voice her disappointment in the June issue. On the top of page 69, author Johnny Boggs mentions ". . . is that a cigar in your hand or are you just glad to see Squirrel Tooth Alice. . ." She went on to say that this comment just totally ruined the great issue for her and that if she continues to see such "cheap" comments, she'll request her money back and cancel her subscription. She said she thought of it as a great family magazine until she saw that.

These are tough calls. She sounds like a very nice person, and we certainly don't want to offend her, but Johnny's comment is not exactly Howard Stern territory. Maybe "Three's Company" territory but it seems rather harmless enough to me in today's climate.
