Discussion Topics this Week:

SPACES? - A thread on the discussion of how many spaces at the end of sentences
and after colons, many said 2, many said 1. A desktop publishing maven <g>
(Shoshona <AniMaAmin@aol.com>) who has studied the origin of typography offers
the definitive word on "spaces" and states that the "two spaces" predates the
typewriter and was used to indicate a new sentance to the typesetter. "Today's
modern publications follow the new typography standards, and the extra space
is as obsolete as quill pens."

Geography: Humorous discussion of where Toronto lies, whether or not Phoenix
has subways, and Sharon <SCHLUHS5@technet.nm.org> trying to make us think that
New Mexico is part of the U.S. :)

Felicia <FLECOU@ewu.edu> suggested using the Sliders netforum on MCA web page
to continue E2 discussions.

Other Networks/Papers:

Kurt <captain@iadfw.net> suggested enlisting E2 fans from countries like the
U.K. and Australia that are showing Earth2 on a first run basis to start
building support *now* before the end of their season. See if we can get
momentum building now from the other countries for more shows.

Kurt <captain@iadfw.net> has updated the listing of email, net and snail
mail addresses for E2 contact info. See Kurt's posting for details. For updates
to the list, contact Kurt directly with subject line, "E2 CONTACTS."

? <seifert@cc.umanitoba.ca> received another reply from SciFi channel which
indicated a possible interest in E2 reruns.

ChazmanB <chazmanb@chazmanb.sdi.agate.net> is working on a reply received from
C|net central on possibility of story on save Earth2 efforts.

Nicole <nneilan@unlinfo.unl.edu> received reply from TNT on press release,
<TNT@ccmail.turner.com> said "good job but head programmers have no plans to
pick up the show"

Mark <mjm4@ix.netcom.com> reminds that TV Guide included E2 in its annual "save
our shows" campaign. Suggested might be worthwhile to see if we can get them to
mention our effort.

E2F reports that next season's producers for SeaQuest are: S.Spielberg, David
Burke, Patrick Hasburgh, Clifton Campbell, Carleton Eastlake, Lawrence Hertzog,

filming a 3rd Alien Nation movie "Millennium" to be shown next season along
with the 2nd "Body & Soul."

Gina <GinaT1000@aol.com>: spaces do count, generally 60 char. minimum and can
add another billboard for $50 more. 2 1/2 hours is max air time which includes
take off/landing time, figure 1 1/2 hours actual advertising. Robert, the owner
of Skyads claims that businesses get excellent response to the beach ads.

Kendall <E2Cheer@ix.netcom.com> is OK with 800 number for ad.

Banner suggestions (some):

"Emmy is gold
but fans are blue,
our Outstanding Drama
is Amblin's Earth 2" by Barbara <Barbara407@aol.com>

"Let the journey continue... Renew Earth 2" as re-posted by Vivien
<vivien@-gate.rfx.rfx.com> (Mike's comment: I apologize to the original author,
I seemed to have lost the first post).

NOTE: Michael Hart <mhart@law.fsu.edu> is collecting a list of all the banner
suggestions. (Offer to collect votes Michael?) Please email suggestions
directly to Michael.

Shoshona <AniMaAmin@aol.com> suggested E2 fans band together and meet outside
the emmys, holding up placards (big ones) with the same slogan as the banner.

There <TAK@gcwf.com> thought of going to Emmy's dressed as Terrians.

Cathy <Cathyfb@aol.com> suggests handing out cards that say, "This card will
get you free drinks at TGB&G". John <johnw@umsa.umd.edu> adds, this might be a
great stunt to pull at a con. especially if they had address or web page
listed, suggests:
TG like Robert Indiania's original LO
Mia <Miamc@aol.com> addes flip side could have E2EA info.

Alicia <mowlaial@ucunix.san.uc.edu> asks if we should think about a
strategically placed billboard. Mary <maryb@pacific.mitre.org> thinks yes and
do it before the Skyad if not too expensive.


Last week Gerald <71532.173@compuserve.com> suggested adding a pro-save e2
caption to your sig. line at the bottom of email's, this week Nicole
<nneilan@unlinfo.unl.edu> was asked about her sig. line by a viewer from U.K.

Scott <msgates@roanoke.infi.net> reports from "Hollywood Inside" article that
campaigns to save failed shows receive more attention through hand written
letters on personalized stationary. Just place Exec's address on the front of
envelope, NO mention on outside as to the letter's contents so it's not tossed.

Mary Lynne <m.nielsen@ieee.org> commenting on Donnijean's published letter to
the editor in EW notes that it could be due to the volume of letters which
might explain why they chose to highlight only E2.

Gina <GinaT1000@aol.com> Suggested sending post card to Eileen Roberts to thank
her for all the help that she was to Vivien and the Earth 2 supporters.
