Dear Friends and Colleagues (and B.L. Ochman, too),
Well, Strumpette got off with a bang indeed. Our server is still quivering. Note this girl's got that telltale smirk today. Thanks.

No real reason, he was just irritated by our teasing him about getting in bed with pornographer Joe Francis. Anyway, Ronn gave his obscenity-laced word that we'd see the complaint in 72 hours.
