After reading Michael DeAntonio's desperate cry for attention, I noticed how reader comments have been rather light around here lately. Why is everyone so quiet all of a sudden? I know you're still visiting Bamboo Nation as voraciously as you ever have (my stat monitors tell me so), but, for some reason, the comments section has seen a slight decline. Don't you realize that my entire self-worth rises and falls in direct proportion to the frequency and quantity of comments that get posted here?
Click on the "Top Commenters" tab in the sidebar—do you see how few comments it actually takes for your name to make it onto that glorious list? You may never win the Nobel Peace Prize, but being a "Top Commenter" on Bamboo Nation is a very real possibility, a possibility that could very well change the course of your life.
(As for my current Top Commenters, hugs and kisses and you have won your way into heaven. Did you know it would be that easy? And look at the accompanying photo—did you know that's what heaven looks like?)
