I have good news and bad news.

The good news is that I somehow survived my April First encounter with the
"League for Truth and Veracity". :)

But I also made a discovery. When I got the truth through my thick head, I
proved that it is impossible to laugh oneself to death - otherwise I would
have perished. So the bad news is that those of you who plan on dying will
have to find another method.

Looking forward to seeing you all at Norfolk. And just remember: Next April
Fool's Day it may be YOU!

Tom
