Looks like de Medina has everyone pretty much where he wants them.
Man, I don't think I want to be in Joachim's shoes right now.
Okay, the contest this week. This week's question takes back to Collins' first night in Cedar Creek. Collins thinks he's rescuing a hostage from Drytown, only the hostage expires before they make it into Cedar Creek. When pronouncing him dead, Cedar Creek's doctor says they should've called the undertaker. What's the undertaker's name? Protip: you can find the answer on this page (last panel to be precise). Send mail to me, that's email@example.com and put "Murder Moon Contest" in the subjectline (the link should do this for you). Put the answer in the body of the message. Do this before midnight on Thursday. Then you'll be entered in this week's drawing. Winners announced on Friday. And not to be a nervous nellie or anything, but without more entries, there's no more contest. Tell your friends! Tell your family! Tell the president!

As noted ealier, THE THIRSTY is now on a two-day-a-week schedule. There's a couple reasons for this, but they all come back to me, so I'll take the heat for it. I will try to add some extra value on the day that we'll be missing, but not entirely sure how. Didn't get much of a response from the behind-the-scenes material, which leads me to believe that people just want the stories and don't care about how they're made. If I'm wrong in this, please let me know by way of the comments. Friday will have a special feature of some kind, so be sure to check back then. Again, this stuff doesn't happen without you, so drop me a line or leave a comment.
Lately, I've revamped Highway 62's weblog. The old bookmarks should redirect to the new site, but go here and reset your feeds if necessary.
