Hi, everyone, this is Doug, with this month's traffic report. Once a month, during the first part of the month, I send the report to the entire HUMOR list. Welcome to the month of July, 2002.

Effective with the February 2002 Traffic Report, I am stopping the Contributor's SpotLight. With only about 20 people contributing, I have run out of Contributors willing to be featured in the SpotLight. It is not worth keeping it for just new Contributors.

WOW!! We had 4 Contributors tied for posting every day and 2 tied for missing only one day. The numer of posts was up a good bit too. Keep up the good work.

Sorry to be late with the Traffic Report this month. I was on vacation and it took a while to get everything caught up.

Since, I am not a real regular contributor, I will not be providing new Humor. Instead, I will provide a joke from the archives. It will be at least 14 months old, so most of you won't remember it. You will either see the joke below or a link to the joke, not the actual joke, although I will provide the Subject line (Topic). Since there are now HTML versions of all Digests, it will point to the joke itself. My contribution of Humor from the Archives:
    
    If an S and an I and an O and a U
    With an X at the end spell Su;
    And an E and a Y and an E spell I,
    Pray what is a speller to do?
    Then, if also an S and an I and a G
    And an HED spell side,
    There's nothing much left for a speller to do
    But to go commit siouxeyesighed.
                    -- Charles Follen Adams, "An Orthographic Lament"
