That mail is read by more than one person, and almost never generates replies.

As for other mail, I get hundreds of emails a day. I welcome the news and feedback, and read all of it (except the spam of course), but I'm sorry to say, I still can't possibly reply to all of it.

If you send news and it's posted, the name in your signature, but no email address (unless you request otherwise), plus any relevant web-links will be posted along with the story. I publish things of interest, so if you are sending something that's not for publication, please include a warning: confidences will not be broken.

Unless requested otherwise, mail may be posted in the MailBag. Letters in the MailBag may be corrected for spelling (but not grammar), and unless the author requests otherwise, their email address will not be included. You can specify feedback for the MailBag by sending it to
