Doud Gilford was so moved by the outpouring of sadness over the closing of his incredible MAD Cover Site that he has reinstated it! Hooray for all of MAD fandom, and a humongous THANK YOU to Doug for keeping this institution alive. From the MCS:

Because my act of removing the site has been likened to a crime against humanity,
because researchers are being left in the lurch in the middle of their books, films, and websites,
because I’ve been taken aback by the outpouring of genuine love and well-wishing through too many correspondences,
I hereby reinstate Doug Gilford’s Mad Cover Site for who knows how long.
Are you really surprised?
I am.
Wow, not even a week!
What I have learned in the last few days is that the thing is bigger than me and should survive.
I should be able to limit my role and be happier.
I can’t take MAD Facebook groups anymore, so THANKYOU Adam for replacing my old group with
the much better Mad Mumblings, and thanks for the many supportive and patient words of wisdom.
Let’s speak no more of this.
No more great write-ups, Tom.
Charlie, you were right.
Now get off my lawn!

    YAY! You’re MAD Doug, but welcome back. Or did you really even leave??
