HAVE YOU MOVED?
Ed. Note:In this space weusually run Prof. Pierard's pointless plea
for people who have moved and left no forwarding address tolet him
know their new addresses. Duh. (But, wait, could this be a not-so-
disingenuous ploy by Prof. P to get you non-dues paying idlersto pay up
before you're consigned to the mailing label dustbinof history? Pretty
sneaky. OK, here goes.)
If you have moved recently or ifyour address label is incorrect in
any way, please let Dick Pierard know,either by eMail or by postcard or by
letter (if you just wanna get those dues up to date). Thanks. Heh, heh.
