Dear Friends,

Here is another place to check when you receive an e-mail with
apparently laudable content, but possibly dubious origins --

this is a hoax.  go to the following link to verify.  It has been
circulating for years and I personally have received it several times.


If this link for some reason doesn't work for you go to the
http://hoaxbusters.ciac.org/hoaxbustershome page and enter "National
Public Radio" in the search hoaxes field.

If you are really concerned about funding for NPR (it is always a
concern)  an internet list will not influence that significantly one way
or the other.  However if all the people who signed this e-mail sent a
handwritten letter to their congressman/senator.  NPR would be given
much more of the clout that it so justly deserves.
