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 announcing that Drag Racing Underground officially proclaims November as being "NHRA RACERS APPRECIATION MONTH" resulted in lots of emails. Ralph from Ennis, TX wrote, "Kudos to Doc for recognizing how hard our racers work on the NHRA tour. I used to be a crew guy for many years. I agree with Doc that being a professional driver isn't always as glamorous as it appears." -- On the far other side of the opinion fence, "Angry Gary" from Monroe, MI scribes "Give me a break. Another fluff piece from Doc. Who does she think she's fooling? Those pampered NHRA pro racers have it made in the shade!"... Wednesday's TALES OF THE PHANTOM RACER serial series resulted in lots of you writing in. Unni from all the way in Fauske, Norway said, "Thank God that Sebastian was able to transform into the Phantom Racer and get rid of that scary Mantis monster!"-- Once again Gary from Wellington, OH wrote in, "I'll bet that next year we see the Heavenly Drag Racing Association return to their strict no Halloween activities policy."... My blog summarizing my trip to Raceway Park last Sunday for THE DIGS AT E'TOWN's nostalgia "Monster Bash" and the No/Time Nationals prompted Paula from Elberon, NJ  to say, "The weather at The Digs could have been a little warmer, but my family still had a great time. Meeting Doc and having her sign my son's baseball cap was the icing on the cake. I love the nostalgia drag racing." -- Deano from Newark, NJ wrote, "Thanks to Doc for stopping by our pit at the No/Time Nationals. Her long support of us outlaw racers has always helped."...  Our so-called "SUNDAY FUNNIES THAT AREN'T NECESSARILY THAT FUNNY AT ALL" managed to get Ellen from Pembroke Pines, FL in a bit of an angry frenzy, she typed, "Why would Marvin have the gall to call Doc a dingbat on her own blog page? He's a very sick puppy and a cyber bully!"... My editorial addressing the issue of our veterans suffering with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) for my Veterans Day blog inspired so many of you to write in with your own personal heart wrenching stories. Simon from Warmego, KS wrote, "I served a couple tours of duty in the middle east with the Marines. PTSD is something that I now live with each day of my life. I can't tell you how much us military vets appreciate Doc bringing attention to our problem. We need much more help than we're getting from the ******** in Washington DC."... 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...
