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 our aggressive anti-road rage campaign caused an onslaught of mixed-emotion driven emails. Cindy from Niota, TN wrote, "I come from a family of marine biologists, so I can definitely appreciate you stating the facts that sharks only kill one person every two years, while road rage kills or injures 15,000 per year. People should be a lot more cautious of getting in a road rage altercation than being afraid of sharks at the seashore!"... Wednesday's TALES OF THE PHANTOM RACER serial series resulted in lots of you writing in. Daphhe from all the way in Volos, Greece said, "I hope in the future that I can attend a sand dragster bikini beach party, but not with the kind of bad beatniks in your crazy story!"-- Once again Gary from Wellington, OH wrote in, "Hooray for Fred The Wrench standing up to Slitzy and telling him that he's not going to share his engine tuning secrets, even if it did get Fred slugged in the mouth!"... Substitute Stephanie's snapshot of the day inspired Dino from Brooklyn, NY to write,  "I love the photo of Doc and Stephanie together. I met them both at Island Dragway. Two of the sweetest girls on earth."-- On the other side of the opinion fence, Henry from Mooringsport, LA said, "How many more times are you going to run that stupid photo of Doc and Stephanie? I'm sick of seeing that pic of those two dizzy hens!"... My blog congratulating Antron Brown, Robert Hight and Drew Skillman on their NHRA Northwest Nationals' win caused Darrin from Ennis, TX  to say, "Thanks to Doc for giving NHRA racers the recognition they deserve!"... My blog announcing that Drag Racing Underground officially declares August as the month we celebrate our colorful accelerating drag racing culture, had Matt from Butler, PA chime in, "I'm going to take Doc's advice and take one of my co-workers to the drag races. Doc always gives us good ideas we'd never think of ourselves. She's the best!"... Our so-called "SUNDAY FUNNIES THAT AREN'T NECESSARILY THAT FUNNY AT ALL" managed to get Roberta from Baltimore, MD in a bit of an angry frenzy, she typed, "Fools like Marvin are potty mouths. If he really thinks foul language makes a man a hero, he must either be a dopey drunk or on hard drugs!"... 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...

 

 

It's "FEEDBACK FRIDAY" here at DRAG RACING UNDERGROUND. That means I print excerpts from some of the emails that you readers write in with. I always appreciate you folks who sit down at your keyboard and type me your thoughts and opinions.
