We've been waiting impatiently for the IRS to get its act together and
formally grant us the 501(c)3 status that we requested. I guess that
someone there likes me, for it arrived months ahead of schedule --
just yesterday. The cause of much rejoicing here at the JREF, believe
me.

Wonderful stuff happening. I got to meet Joel Sidwell while appearing
in Ohio, I was interviewed for a major article in the World Book
Annual, did several TV interviews that will come up later in the year,
met some really great folks in Norway during January, got invited to
South Africa (April 10th-14th), and I'll be in northern Finland in
July (9th-17th) for a set of lectures and a holiday. March 20th-22nd
I'm in Monterey, California. In May I'll be appearing at the
23rd-24th Skeptic meeting in California. I'm in Berkeley, California,
June 6th-8th.

Membership applications for the JREF continue to come in steadily.

Off to see the Copperfield show on Sunday. He always puts me in the
3rd or 4th row, so I'm getting used to looking up his nose.

Thanks for staying tuned! Randi
