I got issues #175-189 out of 2414. I'm signing and sending Dave five issues of his pick of numbers, but then I'ma offer the rest to the fine folks willing to give me money, kinda like I am with: copies of Vark Wars: Walt's Empire Strikes Back (Signed by Dave, Signed by Dave and me, Signed by me after I scribble out Dave's name, Pretty much available Signed only...)

Why does Dave say the post card is from Lincoln but the Blog title says Omaha? That's just wrong! :(

The postmark, visible at 4:00 - 4:05 or so, is from Omaha. Probably an international mail processing facility in the closest thing Nebraska has to a city....

Nuh-uh! No way! Stop spreading the lies! Stop hurting my feelings!

I'd already posted before the video got to the postmark so I did get an answer. Still, it's a lot easier to hear Dave say "Lincoln" than to wait for a stamp from a post office of those evil Omahaians. It should be handled by the good noble Lincolnites. I even got to see the downtown post office on my last visit, totally buried by the new giant stadium right behind it.

Lincoln has well over 200,000 people, it may not be a huge city but it's definitely a city. You need two hands to count the number of times I've been there in the last decade, but it's still my home.
