Here we go again....
Mario emailed late last night to say he was sleeping off a drunk somewhere in South Carolina and didn't think he could get his eyes open wide enough or his brain clicking fast enough to post something today. At least he's still alive.
He should be back and sober to present at the Pikes Peak Writer's workshop tomorrow, May 17.

He also said Eric Calder of the Independent of Co Springs interviewed him but I'll be damned if I could find the interview. Maybe you'll have better luck. Look for it here
Personally, I think he dreamed it.... Colorado Springs, be afraid. The rapture coming on Saturday will be nothing compared to Mario coming on Tuesday...
