I have worked hard to develop a large readership and I appreciate every last one of you. But the resulting problem is this: at the moment I am so swamped with e-mails and comments that I can’t answer them all in one day.
My daughter says I need staff. My husband says I should charge a subscription fee to pay for the staff. Then the readers would go away, the comments would dry up, and I wouldn’t have any money to the pay for the staff that I would no longer need. Does that make sense?
Instead, I’m just asking for your patience. I try to give everyone a considered and well-reasoned answer but sometimes those take a while. I’m reminded of those phone messages that say, “Your calls will be answered in the order they are received.” Well, forget that . . . I answer the easy ones first . . . and I don’t even play dentist office music while you wait.
This notice is just to let you know I’m working on it, patience is a virtue, good things happen to those who wait . . . or something along those lines. Now, for me at least, it’s back to the keyboard.
