Hey I just looked at the latest New Times paper and saw two letters printed, one from Charmanga and one really nice one from Ampersand. Thanks so much to everyone who wrote in, and Ampersand, if you want me to mail you a hard copy of the paper for a keepsake let me know.
Here's Ampersand's letter as printed in the August 7th New Times:
A star is born: I've been a visitor of Blackout.com for some five years now, and I'm glad to see the Hat Man himself get some long-overdue publicity. The site is quite unlike anything on the Net, being a hub for all kinds of multimedia and insanity. The good kind of insanity, mind you.
During the end of 2001, the site slowed to a crawl and the creativity stopped flowing for many months. Since then, the site has grown to proportions it has never seen before. The events and ideas on the horizon are going to be some really great work. The Box is about to go supernova in creativity. That said, it's great that new people will be introduced to Blackout and the gang's little corner of the web because of this wonderful article. It's a great time to be a Blackout's Box fan right now, and I'm glad more people will be along for the ride. So, thanks.

And Dr Charmanga's:
From the homestead: Great job, Courtney Hambright. Her July 24 article, "Blackout.Com," was a great read, and I think she definitely described the tone of the "Hat House" well!
Thanks for all your support I love you guys and I"m glad I didn't die last night!
You are not your job, your titles, your possessions, your degrees, your lovers, your relationships, your place of residence, your social security number, your ID, your bills, your worries, your bank account, your age or your body. You are the timeless being that created & perceives itself through those things, and you have the power to play or not play that game. When someone asks me "what do you do?" looking for some title to pin me down, I laugh and say "EVERYTHING!" - Blackout
