	Hello Mr. C:

	I must say I'm impressed by your writing. 

	As you've probaly heard by now (through the subliminal messages
threaded through the net by quantum connections) I've been elected kook
of the month which means that it's my job to fix the group

	Unhappily in the past this group has been dominated by "The sons of
Serdar" whose techniques have been primarily endless loops of name
calling on the part of both the "kooks" and the "normals."

	I hope to change that.

	To me a "kook" should be a being of enlightenment, a source of laughter
and ideas which scatter the dreary.  I feel you might meet that

	I was searching the Usenet groups looking for a kook to interview when
I noticed we had already had it.
