A quick point.... In my recent posting, the "TBS" reference is to
Tokyo Broadcasting System, not Mr. Turner's organization. If any of
you misunderstood, I apologize.

Ploeg, Wall, Williamson.
(It's not impossible that a few were lost in the mail
or in the bomb-site I call my office. If so, please
pardon the inconvenience, but I will require another
written pledge from you. Thanks.)

James Randi Educational Foundation, temporarily at this
address. The current prize amount is US$607,000,
pledged by 235 persons in 15 countries. SEND NO MONEY.
We may eventually ask that the pledges be replaced with
notarized documents, but at this point the above letter
will be sufficient.
