Primate Nooz is proud and just plain tickled pink to be
able to announce the immediate and irrevocable dropping for all
time and forever of the several lawsuits which were brought against
us by Mr. Christopher Shaw of Los Angeles. The happy resolution
of this unhappy affair has permitted us to at least temporarily
resume the publication of the Nooz, which our many fans have
been yammering for over the past two and a half years, and which
despite its forced hiatus won last month's prestigious Hellmouth
Junior Chamber of Commerce's Citizenship Runner-Up Prize, and
received a favorable mention in the Monkeys of Mali Monthly's
spring 1993 issue. We are also pleased to announce that Mr.
Shaw has once again agreed to become Really Scientific Letters Editor
and also to oversee the 'Recommended Reading' section, replacing
Dr. Thrace Thrasher, who has left the Nooz to become the
personal physician and court primatologist to the King of Broonay.
Thanks, Chris, and welcome back!

the care of a therapist for the past several years and is
now showing signs of the great strain he has apparently been
under recently. At least one of his Nepalese assistants
has stated that Dr. Sanddandtundra accidentally forgot his
medications when he left his research center at Jabalpur and
may actually have been in his tent when the brief encounter
supposedly took place.

Dear Dr. Nööz,
I happen to know for certain
that there are absolutely no primates living north of Nepal. In
fact there are no primates living east or west of Nepal either,
of any size, and Dr. Sanddandtundra should know this. I hear
he has been on Lithium and several other mood-altering drugs. Is
there any truth to this?

I have no idea.
Dear Dr. Nööz,
Just what does this Sanddandtundra
guy mean by 'north of Nepal' anyway? That could include lots
of places. How far north does he mean? And what kind
of a name is Poon? I know a lot of Indians, but not one of
them is named Poon. Have you looked into his institutional
