My lawyers are being fierce with me, and have made me promise to be silent as things develop with the Curley matter. I hope you'll understand. I'll have all sorts of opinions and things to say, but I'll be silent on them until the time is right. I will report, briefly, new developments, but no details. This whole legal thing will be a slow and drawn-out affair, and now that Curley (in his mind) has "forced" me into issuing the Statement of Claim (!) I must allow things to percolate. As for more interesting matters, construction on the Foundation Auditorium will start in January. Our video facility is now substantially expanded, and we can not only make up to eight copies of videos at one time, but we can dub in and out of any format. That includes NTSC, PAL, SECAM, and VHS, UMATIC, 8-mm. Stills of startling resolution and color are possible, and we are beginning to archive -- digitally -- many old tapes of "psychics" being caught at their thing. Also, shows prophesying events that never happened, and various classic "cold readings" that serve as excellent examples for analysis. The book library is up to 1,860 volumes, plus all the French, Spanish, and German books, and hundreds of skeptical journals. If any of you folks still have books, videos, or journals that you could contribute to the JREF, please send them along. I'm off to the Netherlands in January. The A&E series will start in March with a 2-hour special. (The January debut was postponed.) I'll be on the Discovery Web, live, on January 8th. More anon . . . .
