Lady Bunny,

I want to take this opportunity to say "thank you" for all your hard work over the years on your blog. I check it several times a day and just love your politics, camp, and comedy. You're a dear for this, and I don't want you to think no one cares.

An avid fan, Brian

An admirer, Mitzi
