Thank You, Fed Ex! I Will Now Fight Crime.

The fine folks at Warner Bros. just sent this to me along with the latest edition of The Gotham Times, a "Citizens for Batman" pin and a letter from Citizens for Batman urging me to log-in to a password protected website. Um... AMAZING?!

Whoa ... small world.

I checked out your blog because Iann has us both linked via his blog. Imagine to my surprise, who do I see smiling (as best as he can) up in the corner of the screencap, but Bill! We've been friends for a while now, us Long Island kids stick together. Small world.
