I would buy comics from you right now but that goes against my policy of not being a total cockholster who takes advantage of people

The last few email newsletters from Mile High Comics have been downright depressing. Chuck the president has contracted west nile virus for the second time after being told he'd never get it again. As his health deteriorates he's been cutting prices on all the back issue comics in his inventory. What's even weirder is that he's come up with a coupon code named after his disease that offers even greater discounts upon checkout. It's scary to watch and I feel bad for him, but damn there are some good deals here. Check out Chuck's the last email:

WESTNILE Sale Continues!


I have to keep things very short today, as I am even more ill right now than I was on Thursday. I really don't want to belabor the point, but this seeming second case of West Nile (or whatever it is...) that I've contracted has been progressing steadily in intensity. I now have a really hard time with even simply mental processing, and the headaches are becoming more frequent and intense. I just hope this stops progressing, really soon...

While I may be feeling really poorly right now, the additional 20% off that I provided all of you via the WESTNILE codeword sale that I began on Thursday really worked wonders. I realize that allowing all of you to loot our inventory at 50%-80% off will hurt us in the longer term, but quite frankly, I just don't care right now. I'd rather have the peace of mind that comes from knowing that business will be great while I'm not able to be here. So go ahead, use the WESTNILE codeword to grab even our very best books at 50% off. On any another day I really might object to your buying our books for next to nothing, but right now you'd be doing me a real favor if you placed a large order...

That's it. It took me over 20 minutes to compose just the two paragraphs above. I'd love to write some more, but I just don't have it in me today.

Happy collecting!

Chuck Rozanski,
President - Mile High Comics, Inc.

Wow. I feel for the guy. I can't even bring myself to go to their web site to tak advantage of the deals because I'd feel like I'd be taking advantage of him. Wow.
