Today is "FEEDBACK FRIDAY", meaning I deal with emails that my assistant Stephanie and I receive from readers regarding our most recent blogs... Let's get right to your feedback... Yesterday's blog featuring Drag Racing Underground's critically acclaimed anti-road rage campaign resulted in lots of emails. Tabitha from Fullerton, Ca wrote, "Doc is so right about the holiday season being an extra dangerous time for road rage incidents. My brother was severely injured in a road rage crime on Christmas Eve 2015. Thank you Doc for being one of the only voices in media addressing this dangerous national epidemic."...  Wednesday's TALES OF THE PHANTOM RACER serial series resulted in lots of you writing in. Allis from all the way in Swansea, Wales said, "I know that Fred The Wrench is a fictional character, but his distraught condition does have me up at nights worrying for his future welfare."-- Once again Gary from Wellington, OH wrote in, "Fred is proof that even a burly bear of a mechanic can experience a mental meltdown."... My blog titled 'Some Off-Season Advice for My Racing Readers', that strongly suggests getting acquainted with a 'practice tree' device to sharpen reaction time skills prompted Michael from Leominster, MA  to say, "I took Doc's advice and got my practice tree out of the closet. I plan on improving my reaction skills and going more rounds next season." -- on the other side of the opinion fence, Wesley from Reynold, GA wrote, "When I used to race with my buddies we never had practice tree gadgets, and we did just fine. All this new stupid technology is what's ruining everything in this country."...  My blog asking the mainstream media to pay more respect and attention to the sport of drag racing, got Scott from Forney, TX to write, "Doc made a good point about how the mainstream media is all over the Danica Patrick retiring story, but there's hardly a peep said about Brittany Force winning the NHRA Top Fuel Championship. I hope Doc's plea to the mainstream media shakes things up!"... Our so-called "SUNDAY FUNNIES THAT AREN'T NECESSARILY THAT FUNNY AT ALL" managed to get Janice from Park Hill, OK in a bit of an angry frenzy, she typed, "Marvin is an ass. Bullies like him will eventually be the death of drag racing if we don't do something about them."... My blog informing readers that Drag Racing Underground has officially proclaimed November as "NHRA RACERS APPRECIATION MONTH"  inspired Paul from Flushing, NY to say, "I tell my wife all the time how difficult racing on the NHRA tour is. Thankfully, when I had her read Doc's explanation of why that is, I think my wife finally got it!"... Thanks to all of you who wrote in with comments. Even though there's no way we have room to print all your emails, we want you to know that all your comments and suggestions are taken into consideration... Keep those emails comin' (by using the "Contact Us" link atop the page), whether you agree or disagree with mine, or any of our substitute guest bloggers' opinions, we're genuinely interested in your feedback... We just ask that you please keep your emails short and to the point, no rambling please, and please also include where you're from, we often find the location of where folks are writing us from to be sort of interesting. If you want to remain anonymous you can do that too (just write that you want to remain anonymous in the body of your email, and we won't disclose your identity in the event we choose to make a reference to your particular opinion)... Thanks...
