Ken's right.   I should have thought to try sending a note the 
old-fashioned way, like we did in the days before we switched to HTML
and images.  So here's a plain text note to let E-Sylum readers know
we're working on the problem everyone saw today, and we'll
probably republish the last issue once that's fixed.  Meanwhile, 
scroll down in your issue past the computer gobbledegook and you
may find the contents of the issue.  Several readers have indeed
found it there and have submitted comments for next week.

Sorry for the confusion - we're working to fix it, so please bear 
with us.
