An early holiday gift from a reader

With Christmas three weeks away, today the mailman played Santa and brought an early gift from a reader.

It's a long slog, reading every single talkback posted to I support the reader feedback feature on our articles – it's an important part of building an online community – but having to approve each comment means looking at a whole lot of smack talk, because when they can post talkbacks anonymously, folks will say just about anything.

So, when I got a letter from a reader today thanking us for what we do at our jobs, it was nice. Everybody loves – and deserves – getting a letter like this one.

"The staff at OnMilwaukee does a wonderful job each week, and the effort is really appreciated," our fan wrote.

"For people like me who are just looking for a new adventure, you've always got something fun and exciting for us to check out."

No one really does a job to get kudos, but when kudos do come, especially completely out of the blue, they can give you a jolt of energy.

Thank you, dear reader, for making my day.
