I agree with practically all the comments about everyone, so I'll just 
elaborate on a couple about mine.

Yeah, I know.  When I was going over my old notes, I found an action 
sequence I'd neglected/declined to put in.  So I know what kind of 
Missing Story I could be writing.  But now I'm down to one week, and the 
Powernaut wants me to write his comic this week too.  So, we'll see.

The Powernaut says, Yay!  :-D

In Powernaut Comics we don't say Flat, we say Fast-Moving.  I hope the 
Bonus Sections add some depth, though.  :-D
