The Ecphorizer
Editor's Notes Issue 17
Editor's Notes

Gareth Penn's Pursuit of Zodiac (THE ECPHORIZER, December 1981 and November 1982) is attaining mythic proportions. It has been made into a screenplay, which is being handled by agent Howard Burman. We quote from a recent article in the San Jose Mercury News: "The Zodiac thriller, titled 12:22,' has just been optioned by an independent Hollywood production company, and Columbia Pictures may be interested. Burman refers to it as 'a true story' about a Marin scholar who decoded the killer's letters to the press and traced him to the faculty of an East Coast university. 'It's a fascinating battle of wits between two geniuses,' he explains, 'And what's more astounding is, it's based on fact.'"

All subscribers and their guests are invited to another ECPHORIZER party at the editorial offices, Sunnyvale, on January 16 from 2 to 7 pm. We'll supply wine, you just have a good time.

Dear Editor:

Re the movement of the cucumber (up and down? -- in and out? -whatever) from the kitchen to the bedroom (or the bathroom? - or out behind the barn? - wherever), perhaps we should remove from our cars those weather-beaten bumper stickers that read "MAKE LOVE - NOT WAR" and replace them with new ones that read "FEWER MAW - MORE CUKES."

Hail Halley Neal Wilgus
(Scene: Mars Hill with pine forest and starry sky)

Welcome back, old timer - you haven't been around in years.
It's awfully nice to see you. Have a drink, old fellow - cheers!
You're fainter now than last time as your cyclic visit nears.
We could send a probe to meet you if we'd just change our gears.
You see it's hard to make decisions when you're blinded by your fears,
which is why our outward progress is often greeted with cold jeers.
Our priorities are muddled; let's hope the situation clears -
we can give a greater greeting when the doubter disappears.
You've brought a simple message - I hope that everybody hears:
we must seize this opportunity if we've brains between our ears.
It's not too late to shake your hand and buy a round of beers
welcome to the neighborhood through which our planet steers!
