Sounds like a good idea. Maybe we should cross-post everything from the
mail-list to
the newsgroup (sans some of the more "non-public" info). Unfortunately,
there's not
much that can be done about the spam. A lot of newsgroups are getting hit
with it.

I read an interesting article in the latest TV Guide. An interview with
Steven Spielberg.
One particular question goes like this:

TVG: A lot of kids' shows are criticized for being nothing more than
half-hour commercials
for toys. How do you separate yourself from producers who are in it just
for that?

S.S.: Tiny Toons, Freakazoid!, and Animaniacs were obviously never intended
to sell
merchandise because we have not put out a lot of merchandise, other than
T-shirts and
cups. Believe me, it's not beneath me at all. I mean, if there were a
really great
adventure show with superheroes and vehicles and weapons out there that I
could get
my chops around, I would merchandise the heck out of it. But I'm not really
in the adventure game genre as much as I'm interested in social humor.

Hmm.. maybe we need to get Steven's email address!
