        from David Emery, your Editor and Guide
      Dear Subscriber,
      It has been a busy month, what with the discovery of an alien predatory walking fish in Maryland, an asteroid on a collision course with earth and a UFO chased by F-16s near the U.S. capital. Fortunately, some things never change -- like the plots of Austin Powers movies, for whatever small comfort that may provide. In any case, I give you all of the above and plenty more in this week's edition of the Urban Legends and Vaguely Related Stuff Newsletter. Please enjoy...

      Snakehead Attack? Wok, Don't Run!
      Americans seem to find the idea of a walking fish particularly disturbing; why, I don't know. Maybe it smacks too much of evolution, another item high on our list of Dangerous Things That Must Be Banned.

      Oh sure, there were eyewitnesses to the attack, but have you spoken to any of them personally? Had they been drinking? Were they under the influence of CIA mind-control drugs? Take a close look at these unretouched images and the multitude of anomalies become undeniable.
