Thank You For The Birthday Wishes – And Tid-Bettes

Mister D: I just wanted to thank all those BetteHeads that sent me cards, emails, ecards, and myspace messages. I will try my best to get back to everybody because it totally made my day.

I don’t have much to report. I think Bette donated money to Gov. Bill Richardson’s presidential campaign.

CNN Political Research Director Robert Yoon has compiled a list of celebrity donors from the latest batch of presidential fundraising disclosures. I’m sure it’s incomplete, but it’s also interesting nonetheless. I’ll look for more moguls who contributed.

I also found out Bette’s “Cool Yule” came in 5th place for new Christmas CD’s released in 2006 selling 273, 000 copies. If you incorporate all CD’s before 2006, she would have come in 7th.

If anyone is interested in the other CD’s, write me and I’ll find out…

Love, Mister D

PS: I may be out of touch for a couple of days. Have some really important stuff that I have to do…so please limit emails so I don’t have to answer a lot. Thanks for everything….
