The New Primate Nooz is happy to announce that, with only a few exceptions, virtually its entire old staff has been rehired by the Takeshitahara Corp. We welcome everybody back.We also welcome Yoshida Murasaki as our new Stainer and Abe Kabuki who is taking over in Odds and Ends.

In 1993, before we shut down all operations here at Primate Nooz, we received a letter from a sixth-grader at Hellmouth Middle School pointing out what should have been an obvious truth.  The Nooz is read all over the world, and yet we display a surprisingly provincial attitude.  The example he used, and we kicked ourselves for not realizing this before, was our 'Recommended Reading' section, which includes only material written in English.  All this time we could have been recommending reading in other languages, but we had turned a blind eye to the rest of the world.  We had ignored thousands of readers who don't speak our tongue.  We had assumed that everyone spoke English.  By the time it became evident to us, it was too late to do anything about it, and so for the past decade we have suffered the tortures of the damned, thinking of lost opportunities, and trying to reconcile ourselves to the painful fact that we could never correct this horrible mistake.  But now, we are back, and we have been given a second chance.
      Therefore, with this issue, we have decided to ask the world's forgiveness by trying to rectify this grievous omission, and include the rest of humanity in the 'Recommended Reading' section.  We hope you can see your way clear to taking us back and not holding this shortsightedness against us.
