[Really Good Quotes A mind, once expanded by a new idea, never returns to its original dimensions. - Oliver Wendell Holmes] [Subscribe to RGQ]Message 1 of 1 , Sep 2, 2008View Source
Tonight was one of those nights where I literally could not find anything to write about. It was so bad that out of desperation, I decided to try to do something with an article I found in The Frisky in which women are asked what they'd do if they had a penis for a day!
Seriously. Can you imagine how bad that would have been?
Fortunately for you, Cliff inadvertantly saved you from this travesty of writing.
Cliff is the unsung hero of RGQ. He rarely gets mentioned, but he's behind each issue.
RGQ is a complex undertaking. I send Cliff a week's worth of jokes, quotes, images, etc., while Patti formats the comments and sends them to him as a complete unit for pasting, and the staff writers send their stuff to him. He puts it all together into a complete issue, which he sends to Mike and me so that we can add in our pieces and then release it to you.
Somehow, in the email he sent me he accidentally forgot to attach the file. It's happened to me before, and I'm sure it's happened to you as well.
I don't want to sound like I'm slamming him in any way because I'm not. It's just something that happens sometimes, but by the time I was ready to try to do something with that horrible source article and noticed it, it was already 11 PM, or 2 AM in Ohio where he lives. I figured he'd probably not appreciate a phone call, so I decided just to pass on today's issue.
This is a great opportunity for me to publicly thank all the crew at RGQ for the tireless work they put into each issue. They're really a great bunch.
And I want to thank Cliff for proving beyond doubt that I simply couldn't do it without you. I also owe you a debt of gratitude for saving me from writing what would undoubtedly have been the worst RGQ opening ever!
We'll be back next issue, I'm sure.
