To all subscribers,

The December issue was mailed Friday 12/30/05.  I received my copy (I 
mail one to myself as a control of the process) Friday 1/20/06 - three 
weeks later!!  Please take the time to complain to your local 
Postmaster.  I will be filing a formal complaint with the Palmdale 
office Monday.
