The Curiosity SIG
Mark R. MacHogan

Issue #21 (May 1983)



"Here is the description as written by the coordinator: 'CURIOSITY SIG: Sam Moore, Pittsburgh, PA 15230). 'Send a SASE and you'll see.' This is on the level, folks. I didn't make it up. Sam asked me not to say any more than that."
- Ann-Marie Dobbs in the Mensa Bulletin (March 83)

Dear Sam:

All right, you did it. You win. Just what the heck is a Curiosity SIG?

Sincerely, Mark

Dear Mark:
Wouldn't you like to know?

Sam

Dear Sam:
Aren't you going to tell me? I'm dying of curiosity. I must know. Please reply soonest.

Mark

Dear Mark:
Just a follow-up letter to make sure you got my newsletter on the Curiosity SIG. How's it look? We hope to have you as a member soon.

Sincerely, Sam
PS: Don't forget about the special offer.

Dear Sam:
May the Holy Saints forgive Mister ZIP, I didn't receive the newsletter. Somehow it must have gotten lost in the mails. Enclosed is a whole bunch of stamps. Please, please send me another. I must know whatever it is that I don't know about this SIG. Please forgive the inconvenience.

Sincerely, Mark

Dear Mark:

Hope you enjoyed the first two issues of the Cat Rack. What did you think of that great picture?

Sam

Dear Sam:

What issues? What picture? I have received NOTHING! Here's twenty dollars. Please send me a copy of the newsletter and I'm signing up now officially for whatever the special offer is. Just send me a copy! I MUST SEE ONE. Hurry.

Mark

Dear Mark:

Well, I'm sorry the Curiosity SIG never got off the ground, but I hope you enjoyed the back copies of the newsletter. I'm off to Australia, but you can get in touch with me through the address on the title page. Best!

Sam

Sam!

DON'T LEAVE ME! I have received nothing but your notes. Please send me something, anything about the Curiosity SIG. Please!

Mark
