It is with regret that I must say that the controversy over this matter and
the volume of response have blown far out of proportion. It is my
current belief that an excessive amount of mail directed at the Kitchener-
Waterloo Record can only aggravate the situation. While I originally set
up an email drop box for letters to the Record, I must ask that people send
no more.

The letters so far have all supported me, and due to the excessive volume,
I would understand if the editors felt the batch were suspect coming from
me. Because of this, I must ask that any who still require me to forward
their letter send a confirmation. I regret having to ask this but I truly
feel it is the best course at this time.

If you INSIST, you can do this by replying to this message, which will
mail to rconfirm@looking.UUCP

If you do confirm, you can re-send the text of your letter, or just a
confirmation, in which case I will get it from the "record" mailbox.

You will not hear much, if anything, more from me on this subject.
Thank you all for your kind support. I know (perhaps more than anybody, now)
how difficult it is to come out in public to defend somebody accused of
racism, or anything like it. You are all to be applauded.
(Sorry, but mail to me on this topic will not receive a reply.)

A man had to attend a large convention in Chicago. On this particular
trip he decided to bring his wife. When they arrived at their
hotel and were shown to their room, the man said:

"You rest here while I register - I'll be back within an hour."

The wife lies down on the bed... just then, an elevated train passes
by very close to the window and shakes the room so hard she's thrown out
of the bed.

Thinking this must be a freak occurance, she lies down once more. Again
a train shakes the room so violently, she's pitched to the floor. Exasperated,
she calls the front desk, asks for the manager. The manager
says he'll be right up.

The manager (naturally) is skeptical but the wife insists the story is
"Look,... lie here on the bed - you'll be thrown right to the floor!".
So he lies down next to the wife... Just then the husband walks in.

"What", he says, "are you doing here?"

The manager replies:

"Would you believe I'm waiting for a train?"
