  • Dear Cowbird,

    I can't take it anymore.

    The picture blackouts have gone on too long. Every week it seems some or all of our pictures are randomly devoured by zombies.

    You know how important photos are to many stories. Sometimes a photo is the story itself.

    Where did the images go? Did you send them to the dry cleaner and then lose the ticket?

    Please stop this from happening.

    Best wishes,
