Hi Eleanor, Dick, All,

Eleanor: Take a little time and re-read _all_ of Dick Hall's
responses to you over the last several weeks. Trust me, the
answer to your question _is_ there!

Help us to raise the needed funds to complete the study.

Dick: Eleanor is not 'groking' your responses. Next time she
repeats the same question, please, simply refer her to the
UpDates archive for a response so we can focus our energy and
limited 'List time' on the _real_ issue;

- raising the necessary $ to complete the abduction study.

All: Please don't forget to send a contribution to the Coalition
so that maybe we can get the results of the abduction study in
the not too distant future. I'm rapidly bearing down on 60 so I
have more than a passing personal interest in seeing the study
completed in as timely a manner as possible. I'll do my bit and
continue to post reminders to the List until the needed funds
have been secured.

Please, just send what you can. One dollar, a thousand dollars,
every buck will help bring us that much closer to the goal.

Make all checks payable to:

UFO Coalition

Address to:

Rob Swiatek
The Fund For UFO Research, Inc.
P.O. Box 7501
Alexandria, VA.  22307

My best to all,

John Velez
