This guy still needs our support. the Anti-gunners are making themselves heard we should take up the slack and do the free subscription at the very least.

See below:



SPEAKING OF LARGE VOLUMES of e-mail, I'm *still* not caught up with the
mail I've received about guns. It was sparked by three stories two
weeks ago, which led to hundreds of the free edition subscribers
canceling their subscriptions. (Only one Premium subscriber did.) Those
three stories, and the most interesting of the responses I've read so
far, are posted at http://www.thisistrue.com/guns2.html

A number of people predicted that those hundreds of unsubscribes would
be more than made up for by people who *liked* the stories and passed
the issue around. That hasn't happened. In the two weeks since the 20
April issue, despite nearly 1000 new subscriptions, the subscriber
count is still down by 381 people. (That doesn't at all mean 1400
people quit in anger; some number quit every week, and I have Lyris set
to automatically delete addresses it can't deliver to two weeks in a
row. But such a trend down is certainly atypical.) So to those who have
told me how word of mouth will replace those people, my reply is:
saying so won't make it happen. I need *your* support to make up for
the exodus. Please do help spread the word about TRUE. If you really
loved those three stories about women protecting themselves rather than
lying down to become victims of criminals, a good start is to point
people to the web page noted above and give your encouragement to
subscribe. Thanks!
