This is for everyone, not just Harry.  Gather the submission information for your
local news media (newspapers, radio, TV, etc.).  Pass them along to William and
me, but keep copies for yourself.  When our initial announcement is ready, send
copies of it to all those media.  If you're willing (_please_ be willing :-) ) to
be interviewed, indicate so on your submission.  Often having a local connection
to a press release or news story can make the difference between running it or not
running it.  With trepidation I'll volunteer to answer questions from home myself,
if your media contacts wish.  My home phone number is (570) 326-3987 in the US.
I'm in the Eastern time zone, which is -5 hours GMT.

If you have any contacts with educational media we especially want to hear from

Doug Loss                 All I want is a warm bed
Data Network Coordinator  and a kind word and
Bloomsburg University     unlimited power.
