This afternoon the kind young lady who posts my words online informed me that she has decided not to upload this week’s Card Of The Day today as we had hitherto planned. The post last Friday, King of Octopus, inspired a veritable deluge of missives by annoyed, befuddled and downright infuriated readers. The kind young lady who posts my words online believes that I should respond publicly, to better inform what readers remain. I asked her to send me a handful of the most interesting of these letters but apparently she is recovering from eye surgery due to smoke damage and so has only just began reading them. We will update you loyal remaining readers as promptly as her vision will allow.

I remain yours in every respect,

[Name Withheld]
