Good Morning y'all, here I am again with this week's Traffic
Report. This is the Weekly Traffic Report that is sent to all of
the Humor List subscribers once a month.

As far as collecting the Digests for previous years, I'm happy to
report that thanks to both Tim Holliefield and Antonio Oliveros,
I now have all of the 1995-1996 Digests plus some of the 1993-1994
mailings as well.  If you have any 1993 or 1994 Digests intact,
please contact me.

I will be compiling the Digests this winter and posting them on our
web site.  I would hope that most of you have a chance to visit it
soon and look it over, then offer any suggestions you'd like to see
incorporated.           www2.crosswinds.net/baltimore/~jimjr

To verify current addresses, our server randomly selects
subscribers and sends an e-mail to verify the addresses.
Subscribers need take no action when such a message is received.

Errors returned from your Server to our ListServer may cause your
name to be dropped from the list.  If you feel, at any time, that
you have been dropped from the list, or have stopped receiving mail
from the ListServer, simply resubscribe.  You will not receive
duplicate mailings to the same address; if you're already
subscribed, the ListServer will verify that.

And now for a contribution of humor:

No one really knows what's going to happen to the financial
markets, not just in the US, but all over the world.  I can offer
some common definitions though, so we'll all be speaking the same
language:

       Slow-Down - Your company stops overtime, reduces benefits
       Recession - A friend loses their job
      Depression - You lose your job
           Panic - Your wife loses her job
