Retraction


While at least one reader has demanded a retraction for my last post , another has brought to my attention the fact that the content of another recent post has been exposed as a hoax.

Reader Kathy emailed me the following:

I'm sorry to tell you that the 'lost' tribe are not new readers for Yajeev. They've been found since 1910 and if they haven't found the Land of Yajeev by now, well, it's time for a new advertising strategy!

I've been bambooozled and have, in my zeal, propagated the bamboozledness to the Land of Yajeev readership, and for that, I am very sorry. To read about the hoax that shook cyberspace, click here.

I also extend my sincerest regrets to the heretofore presumed-to-be-uncontacted tribesmen and tribeswomen. If you reply to this post with a valid Amazonian jungle address, I'll send down a coupla Land of Yajeev t-shirts. You're going to like the way you look in them. I guarantee it.


... on a separate note, the course I am teaching is drawing to a close, my wife and dog have officially moved to Connecticut, and I am soon to follow... as are several posts which are already written in my head (as my dad would say) ... I'm forecasting a surge in postages. No promises. Just predictions.

Okay Gore.

Are those t-shirts going to be "on-the-house?"

It's hard being on top.

russ, gore bless gore.

mark (and tribesmen), i apologize for any confusion i might have caused by being unclear-- i will send these shirts to our amazonian friends provided they send me their mailing addresses AND a valid credit card number (or certified check).

jon, i like to keep at least one strawman positioned just a hair above me.

Do surges really produce the hoped-for-results?

I will believe it when I see it.

Good luck.

thus far, my surge has been little more than a fizzle, but i'm not throwing away my "mission accomplished" banner just yet.
