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 August, 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.

It's September and sone of our subscribers are back in school. If you turned your mail off for the summer or changed your email addres, be sure to restore it to normal.

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:
    
    One day in heaven, the Lord decided he would visit the earth and take a
    stroll. Walking down the road, the Lord encountered a man who was crying.
    The Lord  asked the man, "Why are you crying, my son?"  The man said that he
    was blind and had never seen a sunset.  The Lord touched the man and he could
    see and he was happy.
    
    As the Lord walked further, he met another man crying and asked, "Why are
    you crying, my son?"  The man was born a cripple and was never able to walk.
    The Lord touched him and he could walk and he was happy.
    
    Farther down the road, the Lord met another man who was crying and asked,
    "Why are you crying, my son?"  The man said, "Lord, I work for the
    Government," and the Lord sat down and cried with him.
