Dear List:

Because Paul Allen is a neighbor here in Green Valley, AZ, the
local astronomy club was interested to learn that Mr. Allen was
about to provide funds for a new astronomy project. This was a
couple of years ago. We heard the new project would either be in
California or in Chile - a new huge dual telescope facility. He
decided to go with the incredible new telescope in Chile. Which,
BTW, will discover new planets and do follow-up work on those
planets already on the list.

Not to worry, the skies will be covered better than ever.
