CNI NEWS SAYS FAREWELL, AND THANK YOU...
Dear Friend of CNI News,
The upcoming issue of CNI News, which will be sent to you by midday on
1, will be the last you will receive. Undoubtedly this will come as a
surprise to many readers, especially those of you who have only recently
subscribed or renewed your subscription. Let me say that I'm surprised
well. Until recently, I was anticipating a very different course of
keeping CNI News as a central focus of my work.
But just a few weeks ago, something quite extraordinary happened. I was
offered an opportunity to join a dynamic new media project that will, I
believe, soon reach a far larger audience than CNI News ever could. At
moment, this project is still in development and remains mostly
However, I can tell you that it will focus in a scientific way upon a
range of important issues relating to the human future, including
kinds of mysterious or anomalous phenomena. I can also tell you that my
in this project will be as a writer and editor, much as I've been with
News and my other online journal, Global Situation Report. Much of what
produce will appear on the web.
Within a few weeks, it will be possible to tell you more about this new
project, and I look forward to that. For now, it seems best to bring CNI
to an orderly, though somewhat hasty, conclusion and make way for
new work ahead.
Because the UFO subject is often associated with secrecy and seems to
paranoia in some people, please accept my firm assurance that I welcome
new opportunity and have not been "bought off," intimidated nor in any
coerced into shutting down CNI News. Nor has my interest in the UFO
diminished, even though UFOs will not be a central focus of this new
I am convinced that this opportunity will enable me to pursue many
care about in a more powerful and productive way than ever before.
Let me also assure you that every paid subscriber will receive a full
refund for the unused portion of his or her subscription. The refund
will take some time but is already underway, and your patience will be
appreciated. Those who are owed the most will be refunded first. More
information on this will be sent to you shortly.
Those of you who are long-time subscribers surely realize that CNI News
been for me not just a job but a project of the heart. It has brought me
friends and endless fascination. I do hope my efforts as editor have
worthy of your support and trust.
Please accept my sincere thanks for your interest, your caring and your
support. Best wishes to you for a healthy, peaceful, safe and gratifying
Editor, CNI News
P.S. One more thing. Because this message is going out to a very large
of people, you can actually do me a very big favor by NOT responding,
you have a serious question or concern. Thank you again.
