That is it for this time around
. The next reveals will be on July 4th so hope you will be around for them. Hey, it is only six short months from now.
Since I have all of you here, I wanted to take a moment to thank each one of you for making this past year the best ever. I think the site has come a long way in this past year and all of you keep making it the best. The site would be nothing with out all of you. I know that, understand that, and appreciate that. Through your e-mails, comments, tips, and everything else you do, this blog is really all about you. I'm just the guy who gets the conversation started.
I need to thank some people who help get that conversation started and who seem to always be there to lend their support or encouragement or material. These are in no particular order.

All of the people who have contributed this year, whether it was something regular, a one time review, or just a tip. There are lots of days I just have no idea what to write about, and magically some tip or article or suggestion will show up in my inbox and it gets me going. I would list you individually, but as soon as I do that, I know I would forget someone and inevitably tick you off, so just know that I am grateful for everything and everyone.
When I think about the assignments I have found for people to write about over the year, I can't help but think about poor Richard who was singled out at The Wackness for removal. Poor guy didn't know what he was in for being associated with the site, but he came back and wanted to write more. For all of the “celebrities” you saw posing with signs some were like Elijah Wood who ran away screaming when they saw them come out. OK, most ran away screaming. So, I appreciate those writers in New York and LA who kept asking anyway.
To all my spies and tipsters and friends of the site, thanks for keeping all the good gossip coming and for taking the time to report things when you see them.
To all of you are who reading this, I hope that 2009 is the year that you have always wanted. The year where your hopes and dreams come true. The year where every resolution happens and you make no mistakes. A year where you don't suffer or see pain. A year where everything is exactly as you would have dreamed. Thanks again for a great 2008. I really do appreciate each of you.
