Hi Paul, please don't be offended by my asking this, but are you sure the
leukemia thing isn't a scam/rumor/legend? It reminds me a little of the
'Craig Shergold wants your business card' legend, though granted with a few
more actual names and addresses. Though the internet has so far failed to
deliver on any of the wonderful utopian promises which constantly emanate
from the offices of Wired Magazine, it is proving itself to be such a
staggeringly efficient mechanism for transmitting fake information that I'm
starting to wonder if the War Department didn't somehow design it that way
on purpose. Having fallen for more than a couple of these myself (yes, I
admit it) I'm now inclined to immediately trash anything that arrives
prefaced by the expression "this was forwarded to me by a friend".

Anyway, if this is someone you know personally then I apologize for this
tirade . . .

Best,

Luke
