By all accounts, it appears we are a success. The response from the ACP/TPF community has been incredible. Postcards for free one year subscriptions are still coming in, and the letters and phone calls from people all over the world are really appreciated. Thank you for all your support!

There were some minor glitches in the first issue I want to apologize for. There were five typos that we should have caught, and we've taken the necessary steps to insure the accuracy of the publication from this point forward. We had someone observe that the newsletter seemed to be "slanted" towards folks in the United States. We won't argue the point, but do want you to know that future issues will contain articles about people and shops the world over.

I do want to take this opportunity to directly address those members of Management at their respective companies who are concerned about our mailing list ... specifically, the availability of our mailing list. Very simply, our mailing list is not for sale. Anyone that requires some personal assurance is invited to call me direct at (214) 517-8078. While I'm genuinely flattered at even being considered a potential threat to some of the largest corporations in the world, let me persuade you to look elsewhere when measuring cause and effect.

Finally, I want to let everyone know about our toll-free phone number. If you would like to subscribe (first year free), or would like to contribute an article for publication, you can now call us toll-free at: 1-800-723·8078

We will continue to do our best in bringing you the information you want. Let's keep the lines of communication open. We're all in this together!
