The Tarnished Truth
*** Vol IV *** January 2006 *** Issue II ***

Hi everyone and welcome to The Tarnished Truth.

As we bid 2005 goodbye, I hope we can look forward to a happy and prosperous 2006. We saw quite a few new members in 2005 and I hope the membership continues to grow in this new year. I would like to thank everyone for their participation on the Talk and Trade lists. Our club continues to be very educational with lots of interesting viewpoints and posts.

I would like to thank Ray and Dewey for submitting articles for this issue and I would like to ask the rest ofyou to please consider submitting an article or essay for the newsletter. Remember that this newsletter belongs to all of us and will only be as good as the submissions of its members.

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday and here's looking forward to 2006!

I hope you enjoy this and future issues of The Tarnished Truth.
