    Will, I didn’t know it was VP until the end, but that just gave me an added buzz (as in “Hey, I READ this guy!”).

    Woohoooo! I saw your mini spot on tv tonight. You looked very handsome. Congrats on all the buzz. I read the column on NRO and LOVED your blog links. I am completely tickled, but does this mean we’ll have to only serve you evian when you done with us?

    I’m no ebay expert, but once you get a bid, isn’t the Buy it Now feature disabled?

    Great story, but that detail made me!!?!?!??

    Learn something new every day…
