Hey, I play Mafia Wars...and I really like the wish you guys would allow class changes as they are grossly imbalanced.

Also, wanted to say I was sorry to hear about your dog passing in Jan....kinda' sucks and I really do extend my sympathies. I've got two dogs and they're wonderful companions who always give affection unconditionally.
