I guess the cool thing about the Internet is that its transcends regional prejudices and stereotypes.

Hi folks over there,

Vienna, Austria just created the second Flash Mob in Europe ;-))

And because it was sooo much fun, we're having the next one

on Wednesday, July 30. If you're around--we'll meet

at 5 pm on Schwedenplatz near McDonald's.

I just saw the 56 photos from the Minneapolis happening

and like it very much. I'd have loved to join them

at the robotic dance ;-))

First off, this is hardly random spam.

Okay, here's what I did to obtain your e-mail address. First, I pulled up the Advanced Search option of the Google search engine. Then, I entered "flash mob" in the "with all the words" field. After choosing "20 results", I then clicked on "Google search". Before I sent anybody this courriel, I examined each website to ascertain whether there was an invitation of any sort. By invitation, I mean phrases such as "I welcome comments" and other like remarks.

In a sense, you passed the test. And that is why you've received this missive. In the event you received one previously, this one comes with new information.

For the sake of quick review, a 28-year-old female aide was found dead in the congressional district office of former Representative Joe Scarborough, currently an MSNBC luminary. The official inquiry into death of the aide, a Mrs Lori Klausutis, left some details open to further investigation. In the earlier note, I mentioned that those details nag at me, A Alexander Stella.

What's more, I'm far from being the only one. There are dozens of websites that are devoting space to this curious happenstance.

So, for the sake of justice for Lori Klausutis, I'm asking recipients such as yourself to consider employing the phenomenon of flash mobs. If you would like like more details, you're certainly invited to click on the following hyperlink:

flash mob for Lori

thanking you in advance for your time in reading this appeal,

warm regards

Oh, swell, likely enough, you'll have to click on my name, ah, the one by the date. And, if that fails, try inserting in the address field of your browser the following U.R.L, namely,
