Due to some as-yet-unexplained technical glitch, the Charlotte Observer as lost its access to its e-mail during the day Tuesday. The outage continues today. Not only does this affect folks sending in letters to the editor and buzzes, but it also is keeping us from seeing your most recent caption contest entries.
The IT folks are unsure when the e-mail service will be restored, and are unsure whether any e-mails sent during the outage time will end up in the proper inbox, or will be simply be lost in cyberspace.
This may drastically cut down on the entries we'll receive for this week's challenge. If you'd still like to send in a caption for this week's toon, featuring Obama as a character from James Cameron's "Avatar" movie, feel free to leave it in our "Comments" section for that post. But unlike the entries you email in, I'd advise against leaving any personal information such as address or phone number.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
