Remembering the Concerned Mothers of America

I was delighted to see that the American Family Association have decided to attack the Pittsburgh Comic Convention: Local Make-A-Wish Foundation bombarded with e-mails over fund-raiser. Personally, I date the success of Sandman to the letter from the American Family Association's "Concerned Mothers of America" which informed us that they had officially started to boycott Sandman. (We ran it in the lettercolumn at the time.) That was the point at which sales began to go up, and they've never stopped. Based on that, I tend to see an American Family Association attack as a particularly good omen. I'm sure next year's Pittsburgh con will be huge, and make a lot more money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
