As was stated in the previous postings, JC is the head of COOP's InfoCom
headquarters in Florida. Secondly...you are to send a self addressed stamped
envelope along WITH the check. If there is not significant money, your check
will be returned. Thirdly, AND most importantly, David Lynch himself is
aware of this specific stunt and is all for it. The publicity generated
will help prove to advertisers that the members of COOP are a viable and
important demographic group. PLEASE email me personally on this if you
have any further questions. COOP is totally on the level and you have no
reason to believe otherwise.

There is no reason to treat things 'gingerly'. JC is leader of the largest
COOP state in the country right now: Florida. He is a top advertising man who
owns his own company...he knows what he is doing...AND is in personal contact
with David Lynch.

Please!!!! Help us with this! If nothing else, it helps a good charity, the
Miami Project for Crippled Children.
