Brian, et al:
You did an absolutely outstanding job this week. The season preview - all 13 glorious parts of it - was fantastic and above and beyond the great work you've done in the past. You did that, and also dealt swiftly, effectively, and truthfully with an unexpected and unjustified assault on the program by a publication whose days are numbered and that, as a result, was willing to cast aside any semblance of journalistic integrity in order to stave off its coming execution. HAIL!
If you've read the tens of thousands of words this week, you've received an invaluable benefit, free of charge. Now is the time to let our friends know that their hard work is appreciated. Support the site, whether your donation is large or small. Every little bit helps and you know you would pay something for what you've read here this week. Just because Brian is picking up swanky sponsors (yay MDEN!) does not mean he and the rest are adequately compensated for the hard work they do for us and for the program.
Once again, HAIL! I can't wait for tomorrow.P.S. I'm under the required 200 words, but I wanted to ensure this was as widely disseminated as possible. Those that have consistently worked so hard on this website are not going to beg for help. I don't know how much they need it, but I assume they are not compensated in a way that reflects their talents or dedication to doing what they do so well. So, there you go...
