Cheers!

Congratulations on the new venture and the best of luck to you both!

You Guys Are Awesome! Nice Job David & Geo nice Tat s You Looking Fine ***! Take Easy Cant wait to see the new Venture!

and why all the "not kissing ass" comments are being deleted?????????
soemone is trying to hise something???????
it's ridiculous. i wouldn'e expect that from someone like you Mr. Rothaus!!!

KevMiami, it's a question of fairness. And it's not fair to post anonymous, vulgar attacks on another reader.

dear mr. Rothaus!
I wrote like that, 'cause it really made me angry, that 2 of my comments were deleted. Of course they were not friendly to mr Wylie, but only because they were telling the truth. I would expect, that someone like you - very well known publicist would rather check with the sources, then post something, that someone simply sent you vis e-mail. you should know, that mr Wylie posted this whole LAMENT on myspace.com over and over, just to get some sympathy from people, and maybe some more encouragement for the new thing.
I really am dissapointed, that this is the way you give "your" news to people.
Well... apparently we know what we get till we find the truth - am i right?
P.S. I wouldn't be surprised if this post will be deleted too!
By the way - there is my email - so you can check its authenticity

Listen Coyote Man,

Sounds like someone is trying to get all up on your d*ck! I hope you will consider taking some advice.

Somebody wiser than me once said, "It's not fair to go into a battle of wits with a weaponless man." Mr. D, don't take the bait! Don't lower yourself to KevMiami's level. Those of us who know you, club with you, and chill with you-we all know the truth. Keep your head held high and don't let this witless fool who hides behind a fake email get you down! We're looking foward to seeing the new magazine! Stay focused and you will have the last laugh. To strike back at this faceless and nameless coward would be a waste of keystrokes and such an unfair fight.

Call me when you're ready to go for a ride on the scooter! :-0

Buck R.

KevMiami,
