So when did y'all score this Mike Gintowt fellow? Because he fucking rocks. Seriously. His articles are interesting, relevant, and just off the beaten path enough to be read by my illustrious self. He's doing a hell of a job; you guys need to give him a raise or a blowjob or something.

You're obviously a real admirer. Only Richard's elite band of superfans call him "Mike." As far as his reward for a job well done, we'd love to give him a raise - or maybe that's just lip service. -homies

Richard, On a recent trip to Columbia, we came over to Rocheport and had an excellent meal at the winery restaurant, with a delicious bottle of Le Bourgeois wine. You ought to have a great website. Why don't you get in touch with aaron@shadowguarddev.com, one of the great website programers. He does the Brown Derby website http://www.brownderby.com/ which is a complex, interactive one. Of course he does lots of others he could refer you to also. Thanks for the great food and wine!
