CODES...
-------------
Now that we seem to have gotten over the "Bible Codes" idiocy (though
Drosnin surely made millions when Oprah plugged his silly book), a fan has
reported to me that by using the methods "discovered" by Drosnin . . .

"I found that the 1927 Sears Roebuck Catalogue
contains the score of every Chicago Cubs
game ever played."

Now, friends, THAT's prophecy!!!!

NATIONAL CAPITAL AREA SKEPTICS
------------------------------
Chip Denman, a valued buddy, has asked that I help promote an upcoming
event. He sent me this.....

"The (Washington D.C. area) National Capital Area Skeptics invites all
skeptics to a weekend program in southern Maryland in how to be a
"citizen skeptic."

Details can be found on the NCAS web site: <http://www.ncas.org/ncas/>

PENN & TELLER
-------------
Watch "Babylon 5" on March 25th to see Penn & Teller.

LATEST APPEARANCE OF JESUS
--------------------------
As if "Christ on a tortilla" (as well as in a plywood bathroom door)
and "Mary just about everywhere" weren't enough, we now have a
cleaning-womanin Leeds, England, who found Jesus on her
brass-scrubbing cloth. What could be next?
