Ducts Book: How Not to greet famous people
The webzine of personal stories...

Jonathan Kravetz

While we were eating our peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, sitting around watching the last episode of "Everybody Loves Raymond," passing around the onion dip and crackers, something happened. Suddenly, Ducts.org was inundated with submissions. We are now receiving as many as 10 every week and from people all around the country (and, on occasion, from around the world). We're not quite sure how this happened, although we suspect you had a lot to do with it....
