Nothing Like A Zesty Holiday Party To Stir The Punch Bowl Slowly

Hi Scott—trust the rush of the holiday season has effectively passed, and you are now well-grounded in the new year. I'm somewhat surprised that I haven't heard from you since the CHAMPS holiday party, a sales pitch, a newsletter, or something along normal lines of community outreach.

Does this mean that CHAMPS doesn't exactly view Graphic Solutions Ink Systems as a perfect fit, or has your workload simply been such that we're still on that Scott Sanger list of things to do?

In any case, I'm just re-establishing contact. Of course, I'm less enthusiastic that I am actually filling a genuine gap what with GCS just down the street, but I did talk with those guys (both Brad Johnson & his partner whose name I seemed to have misplaced) over the phone, and in fact, just to show you I'm as guilty of the same slack as I'm zestfully accusing you, I have been meaning to touch base again with them.

Anyway. Give me a shout. I am still interested in becoming a dues-paying member in 1999, getting our business recognized on the CHAMP website, and generally pulling our weight. Please let me know how to proceed.

Not To Flatter Memphis To Pieces

Hello Memphis, I just visited your website. Great concept! You have obviously only just begun fleshing out the neighborhoods, but the idea is noteworthy. I am a former ANC6B chairperson from the early part of this decade, and am now running a web, mail and DNS network here from Capitol Hill. If you see Freddy the Falcon out there flinging superficial biggies to the roddy whites who've broken the rhythm of the streets into noxious little parcels, look out. We can't seed another Tesla, Edison, Westinghouse fiasco. No doubt you realize we're sitting on the Tidewater fault line, and certain city planners want to bring back trolleys. The race is on. I too, had hoped to map the city, or at least my own neck of the woods with an Internet presence, but you seemed to have beaten me to the punch. Fabulous domain name you've got. However, the purpose of this note is not to flatter you to pieces but to make contact with the hope that perhaps there is a way we can work together on this project. If you are interested please contact me,
