      The web site:
      http://www.zeteticism.org/
      has many links on skepticism including the most complete collection of writings critical of CSICOP and
      organized skepticism.
       
       
      The only voice they miss is:
      a cantankerous writer who lambastes the paranormalists and skeptics
       
      Ellen Bass who has a long record of promoting what skeptics believe are usually False Memories is
      on a nationwide book tour.   Some skeptics groups are working on trying to make a response.
      The following is a letter by one group:
       
      To the Editor:

      Rape and sexual trauma have plastered the headlines of local and national
      newspapers this year. Columnists and your own letter-writers have written
      volumes about sexual abuse. Even ³Dear Abby² reported July 31: ³Memory of
      Rape Vivid Despite Years Gone by.²

      Finding useful help to move forward after trauma can be very difficult.
      That¹s why today¹s ³Evening of Healing² sponsored by the Onondaga Community
      Sexual Trauma Task Force and Friday¹s workshop, also thanks to the Syracuse
      University Division of Student Affairs and RAPE Center¹s generosity, are so
      timely.

      Sexual trauma, rape and abuse survivors have more than physical injuries to
      heal. Ellen Bass, co-author of ³The Courage to Heal: A Guide for Women
      Survivors of child Sexual Abuse,² can help survivors by providing a road map
      of the healing process that has inspired recovery in hundreds of thousands
      of survivors. She teaches that through writing about their trauma, survivors
      can regain trust in themselves, ³Writing comes from a deep, inner place,²
      Bass notes. ³Sometimes it¹s scary to say what you need to.²

      While her methodology challenges tradition and can be controversial, that
      thousands of survivors refer to ³The Courage to Heal² as their ³bible²
      speaks volumes. ³It is possible to survive, heal, and thrive,² states Bass.
      We believe it is time for our community to afford itself of this woman¹s
      wisdom. The ³Evening of Healing² is free and open to the public tonight at
      7:30 at Syracuse University¹s Schine Student Center.
