Primate Nooz regrets to announce the immediate departure
from our editorial staff of Mr. Christopher Shaw, who has
found it impossible to carry on his important work at the
Page Museum while at the same time being burdened by his
duties as 'Recommended Reading' editor for the Nooz.  Mr.
Shaw declared in his letter of resignation that the logistical
problem of commuting back and forth between Los Angeles
and Hellmouth has become insuperable and physically
exhausting, causing him to neglect his responsibilities in
both areas.  Mr. Shaw thanked the entire editorial board and
staff for their courtesy and consideration, and wished much
good luck to the Nooz.  We on our part assured Mr. Shaw
that we will continue to do everything in our power to see
that the phony references to him and Reader's Digest are
kept out of the paper, and we apologized once again for any
embarrassment they may have caused him or his family.  It
remains to be seen whether or not he will continue to press
his legal action against the Nooz, but just in case he does, we
have retained the services of a prominent attorney in
Cheesequake who is familiar with cases like this.  In the
meantime, the 'Recommended Reading' section is being taken
over on an interim basis by Mr. Win Wing Wan, lately of the
Beijing Zoo.

Due to an unfortunate clerical error, a ship-
ment of several thousand primate raincoats
that was supposed to go to Bali-Bali came to
Hellmouth instead, where there is very little
need for them. The Nooz supply room is now
overflowing with raincoats, and we'd like to
get rid of them. We have them marked down
to $39.95 each or 3 for $125.  Call Quincey
Brindle at the Nooz office for color and size

Now that I have been suspended from my
duties at the Hellmouth Human Diseases and
Primate Testing Facility, I have a lot of time to
work on my Nooz column, “Dr. Doody's
Cutting Corner,” so your questions will not
be as unwelcome as they were before, no
matter how pusillanimous.  Send SASE to Dr.
Dick Doody, M.D., c/o Primate Nooz,

Now that I have resigned from my position at
the Nooz and my lawsuit is going more slowly
than I had anticipated, I have a lot of time on
my hands and will be more than happy to
recommend some good reading for you, so
please don't hesitate to call me, Chris Shaw,
anytime night or day, toll-free at 1-800-555-
2020, or drop on by my office at the Page

 The Hellmouth Post Office has asked the Nooz to notify its  subscribers that it needs at least one full year's notice of any  change of address in order that it might expedite delivery.  Many  of our readers live in queer places like Bali-Bali and Gabon, and  the vagaries of local postal systems and air-drop companies, not  to mention the uncertainties of political  situations, make it  necessary to have this extra time, and we are sorry for the  inconvenience.  We here at the Nooz hope you will assist them  to make their job a little easier.
