Could you do me a favour and count the number of stars on the
American flag? It matters. If there are 49, then you are paying
the correct cover price. If there are 50, then you are being
overcharged by one dollar.

No, it never dawned on me at all.

You do not have his permission. He doesn't like you at the
moment. He thinks you're horrid. Please respect our copyright
and under no circumstances do you have permission to reproduce
anything from the magazine. Failure to adhere to this
instruction will result in action by our lawyers, Sue, Grabbit,
and Run.

Copyright theft Ray is just that. Theft. (Isn't the concept of
irony a wonderful thing?)

I don't think John was implying you were hallucinating. I think
he was trying to suggest you weren't very bright.

On that point you are right. I have never felt so ashamed in all
my life. As someone who is used to speaking to and helping those
with issues, I feel in this case Ray I have let you down badly.
I am sorry.

As you know Ray, pelicans eat fish. I think John smelt something
fishy about your observation about the issue details of the mag
and was just pecking around to see if there was anything tasty
to get that enormous beak of his into. I think he struck
paydirt.

Could you? It would be helpful. Then perhaps it can be lodged in
the UFO UpDates Archives at the Virtually Strange site so that
it can assume it's importance and position alongside such other
relevant missives like the Eisenhower Briefing and Kennedy's
note to his milkman.

>I invite US and Canadian List members

If there is a party Ray, I want to be invited.

Just one small point. UFO Magazine is available in the States
not only from good bookstores but bad ones as well.

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

If you say so Ray.
