As one of the lucky recipients of a copy of "'Nakeder than Adam and Eve': 'Systemless System' and Theodicy in the New Edition of the Autobiography of Mark Twain," I just finished reading the essay, and it is excellent!  A really fun read as well.  Thank you Hal Bush for your generosity in sending out extra copies and for writing this intriguing essay!

Folks; I'm a bit stunned by the response, and so sadly must now say that I'm out of copies -- so sorry.  I think I will just have enough for those who have written already, so if I do not respond immediately to you personally, do not despair; I put a bunch in the mail yesterday and since last night have requests for the remaining copies.  Thus: please cease and desist!!

Stunned, I say; my grand popularity is something to behold.  There are things one can learn only by carrying a cat by its tail, it seems.

PS: John Bird, yes, it's written in English; though you will need some pretty decent Japanese to read the rest of that issue.

Thanks for everyone's interest!! --Hal B.
