On the edition in my hand, the "Volume 24, No. 1, Jan" is found
in white, the smallest type font on the cover, and is located
just above the tiny color image of the U.S. flag, to the right
of which reads USA $6.99, and just below that is the Canadian
flag in color, followed by CS7.99. Does your issue there show
those flags and the US and Canadian prices? If not, did it ever
dawn on you and Stuart Miller that I might be describing the
cover for a Newsstand Edition as sold here in the U.S.A. and in
Canada, which could necessarily list something the British
edition does not, perhaps for purpose of some requirement,
possibly, of the US distributors that the issue be stated as I
have quoted for purpose of keeping track of which issue they
already have up on the newsstands?

With the magazine editor's permission, I would be happy to scan
the cover and send you and Stuart a copy.

Further more John Harney, it is disgusting of you to say,
"...tell us if you can still see it", as though to imply that I
hallucinated it, looking down your pelican beak that is so long
that your intellectual focus it too poor to think before your
nose that there just might be a special cover adapted to US or
Canadian newsstand service.

I am reasonably confident that by now Stuart Miller knows that I
was right (He could easily discover that there is such a US &
Canada newsstand edition by asking the publisher.) but is too
ashamed of his hasty mistake to have told the list.

Do you really suppose that I made up such a trivial detail,
either consciously (or unconsciously, hallucinated it)? Stupid!
Motivation, John?! What would your pelican mind suppose would be
my motivation for adding such an alleged (by you) false and
trivial detail to my post?

Would you like a signed note from my local bookseller, Books-A-
Million, where I bought the newsstand copy, on their letterhead,
confirming what the cover says? :)

I invite US and Canadian List members to just have a look at the
current newsstand edition of UFO Magazine if you can find it at
a good bookstore or newsstand and confirm to this List (if
you've time and inclination) how wrong Pelican John is on this

The last laugh on this issue (pun intended) is mine, John. :)
