  1. Hi Megan, I have enjoyed your work since I first read you on instapundit.
    I am writing in respose to your bit on vertigo. I am a 77 year old retired
    Air Force officer, happily married so this isn’t a come-on. My reason for writing is your verigo. I have had attacksof it every once in a while for 48 years. I have had the usual tests (inner ear etc) with no real diagnosis, probably mine is a form of anxiety attack. I have coped and had a successful career or two and obviously you have, too. I have never talked to anyone else with vertigo. Just wanted you to know there are others out here with it, too. Best wishes.

  2. I heard you on public radio this evening, and I’ve got to tell you, you really need to talk to an agency about doing some voiceover work. Your voice is just amazing. It came across so well on the radio. I used to be in the business (I’m a recording engineer, semi-retired) and I know what I’m talking about. Trust me on this one–you could be collecting residuals.

  3. I hope your new work arrangement enables you to continue making terrific blog posts. For the past couple years you have been one of the first pages I check every day.
