And now, from our Department of Special Effectiveness, here is:

Subject: Surprises in the Star Wars Special Edition
From: < >

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

As you know the Second Coming is Upon Us. Yes, STAR WARS is back
in the movie theaters. This year, ALN19 (that's Anno Lucasini Noster or 'in the year of Our Lucas'), is the most sacred moment since ALN1. Once again we are able to view THE MOVIE, THE SOURCE OF ALL WISDOM on the big screen where it belongs and be RENEWED IN THE FORCE.

But, yea though this be true, there are non-believers amongst us! Some snide, sinister, cynic is circulating the following heretical tract. Be warned, be wary!

Yours in The Force,

Jim Mica
