I purchased more of mix this year, than last.
Good stuff -- Green Lantern, Thor, Captain America, Star Wars...
I'm under no obligation here to be (Quote) "Fair" (Unquote). It's my blog.
On the other hand, I want this blog reflect business reality as I see it. I want people to trust what I say.

I will say that I had fewer 'regulars' in than usual, and that at least a couple complained. But apparently, they were substituted by non-regulars.
Last I heard, the city of Bend was trying to decide how to allocate their "general funds."
