Info Update for Ted Wright: (Other than email)
the phone at the Newspaper Museum 918-371-1901 is still the
best way to reach me (or leave a message). I have turned off my
home phone and will be carrying my daughter Emily's (Florida) cell
phone for the next year (305-815-4467). So if you are in
a big hurry to contact me when I am away from the office and willing
to make a long-distance call, use that cell number. It is a bit
ackward having an out-of-state cell but will finish out Emily's
Florida contract and has a good international plan so I can keep
in touch with her. She arrived in Australia this weekend for her
graduate work at James Cook University. -- Ted -- Monday July 23,

Editorial -- Although this may create a good back to school
clothes and footware buying opportunity for some ... it follows
the typical lawmaker's approach to create
favored status and exceptions instead of making a simple
rule that treated all (buyers, products and businesses) equally.
-- Ted Wright -- July 21, 2007 (e.g. about the only thing I "need"
is a pair of tennis shoes ... but I can't tell where that falls
in the following execption: "This

or footwear primarily designed for athletic activity or protective
use that is not normally worn except when used for athletic activity
or protective use, or to the rental of clothing or footwear.")
