I have been trying my best to answer mail requests and comments but I am still woefully behind. I owe it to each person that supports the 3% movement and contacts me through this blog, the email addresses, or now through Facebook, a timely and considerate response. Due to the overlap in information requests I would like to address a few recurring questions.
Question 1: How is Mike doing?
Still ornery as ever. As good as to be expected. "Fair to middlin', partly cloudy" as he would say. He has been spending most of his time tying up loose ends such as finalizing a will, tinkering with Absolved, meeting with old friends, and generally still being a thorn in the side of the enemies of liberty. There is still much to do and I think that has been keeping him going.
Question 2: T-Shirt Sales
Regretfully, t-shirt sales will have to be put on hold for the foreseeable future. I would like to start exploring a Cafe Press or other online t-shirt company where fans can get SSI logo merchandise,but that will be well into the future. There still exists a quantity of original 100 heads shirts but I cannot say for certain what colors and sizes remain. I deeply apologize that I cannot give you a concrete answer as to when the remainder will be made available. Though I am not personally aware of any remaining orders, if you have paid money for the shirts and not received any, please send me the date and amount you sent as well as any pertinent shipping and contact information. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Question 3: Absolved
This being the 300 million dollar question on everyones lips. With a bit of luck, the Old Man will live to see this book become a reality. I assure you he wants nothing more than to be able to make good on his promise to put a copy of the book personally in your hands. If he cannot, that will fall on the family. As the final work of Mike Vanderboegh, I vow to you that I will make this a reality. It will go out first on Kindle and then on paperback. Absolved will not be an unfulfilled dream.
