Thanks for the reply, Marcelina! It was very helpful indeed. We can
accomplish when we work together.

However, I hope you can help clarify a couple of the more obscure points
in an otherwise fine letter...  Lest they be misunderstood. I don't want
to misrepresent any of your opinions, now... As a fellow journalist, you
understand that desire.

>IF YOU ARE NOT A COP, WHY DID YOU ASKED FOR OUR FINANCES AND CONTACTS IN
>PERU?

Every story about people using the net to circumvent established,
heavily-controlled media monoliths focuses a little on that subject -- how
they can do it on a shoestring, the capital barriers are removed, which
drastically alters the superstructure of news dissemination and "reality
manipulation," (false consciousness, if you will), etc. That's part of the
destablizing promise of the net, that one can now find as easily the New
York Times as the People' Weekly World. They are both "equally far" from
my web browser. (Indeed, the latter is MORE accessible, since they will
send you articles through email for free. It's an ironic situation.) What
this will mean for wired societies in the long run is yet to be
determined. But many people are concerned there is a backlash brewing by
the entrenched capitalist powers currently controlling the media monopoly
to somehow restrict the medium through legislation, etc., to better serve
their own profitline (which would undoubtedly mean somehow re-creating
_artificial scarcity_ of information).

But you know all this, of course, being an editor and online.

As to asking about your contacts... not sure on that. As has been
demonstrated, you have ample access to our email, could you please clarify
what specifically the latter part is about, about the contacts in Peru?
Though I certainly recall asking if you were from Peru, I'm not so clear
on the contacts part. Perhaps you could post the relevant paragraph.

Did those two questions alert you to my status as a Tsarist agent? I note
that after asking these questions, you immediately sent me material in
snailmail for "editing"? Do many servants of the Tsar edit material for
The New Flag?

>IS PART OF THE STRUGGLE. WE DON'T NEED A DISHONEST FAKE "JOURNALIST" LIKE
>YOU TO DEFEND US, LIKE PERUVIANS SAY "NO ME DEFIENDAS COMPADRE."

Now, this is just a tad unclear.

Could you elaborate on the "fake journalist" theme for me? Does this
statement mean I don't earn a living through writing? Or that I do, but
that writing is _really_ a front for police and CIA and Tsar Nicholas
activities? I noted you earlier claimed Rolf Martens is also a CIA agent.
Has the CIA assigned a sizable number of forces to the New Flag?

>YEAH, YOUR IMPERIALISM PARADISE VIOLATES THE RIGHTS OF THE PEOPLE,
>INCARCERATES MOST OF THE BLACK AND PUERTO RICAN YOUTH, CRIMINALIZE
>POLITICAL ACTIVISM AS "TERRORISM" [READ THE NEW ANTI-TERRORIST LAW]
>WHO GIVES GUARANTEE THIRD WORLD PEOPLE HERE? THE COPS, THE MARXIST LIST,
>THE SOCIALIST WORKERS PARTY, GUS HALL, SAN MARCY, AVAKIAN, OLAECHEA?
>NO, THE MASSES THEMSELVES, IN HARD STRUGGLE. YOU SHALL SEE YOUR INS

"My" INS? Gracious, no. The Canadian bourgeoisie actually dislikes the
American bourgeoisie. Heck, Clinton is even threatened to blacklist
Canadian business people who do business with Cuba.

But you know that, too.

So, perhaps this also needs clarification... Do you think I work for the
INS, too? (Is that why it is "mine"? Or is it "mine" in my heart?)

And if you mean that I am an INS employee, do I work for them all -- the
police, the Tsar, the CIA and the INS all together? You haven't suggested
I might work for Fujimori, yet, is that because you are sure I don't, or
that you just haven't got around to determining that yet?

>DEPORTING EXILES TO THEIR DEATH SQUADS OF THEIR COUNTRIES W/O ANY DUO
>PROCESS. DON'T KISS OUR ASS SAYING YOU WILL GUARANTEE THE
>CIRCULATION OF THE CLANDESTINE PUBLICATION OF THE NEW FLAG.

Me? Heck, I can't guarantee anything. Canada has far weaker bourgeois
constitutional protections for the press than the US.

>> I will pass along your plea for help to reps from those organizations...
>FORGET ABOUT US,

Now, ya see, there's the problem. Much as I might like to, I can't forget
about you. Just like an autoworker can't "forget about the assembly line,"
once a story takes on a life of its own, I'm obligated to continue
reporting on it. If I worked for a truly radical paper of high editorial
integrity, like The New Flag, well, then sure it would be easy. But as I
mentioned, I'm a cog in a machine.

It's like the way Olaechea was made into permanent news when the
government of Peru condemned him as a "traitor to the motherland." The
Peruvian government made him a story, even if he never did anything ever
again. Likewise, the investigative unmasking of a CIA-cop-INS-Tsarist
agent publication by the editors of another publication... well, that has
a vaguely similar effect.

But aside from all THAT stuff... there is a larger issue. When you
publicly published to the world that the police visited you because of
activities on the Internet -- whoa! That is a big big BIG story. It might
fit into that stuff I wrote above, the media monopoly trying to crack down
on the net proper.

So, sorry, I can't go away quite yet. I hope you understand it's nothing
personal at all. Indeed, I find you have an absolutely delightful
personality and could make my A-party list anytime. But we all have our
jobs, right?

Now... back to your post. When I asked what precinct visited you -- or
what officer badge number was presented -- you replied:

>BEFORE WE ANSWER THIS INTERESTING QUESTION, PROVIDE DOCUMENTARY EVIDENCE
>THAT YOU ARE NOT A COP. IF YOU ARE, GIVE US YOUR BADGE NUMBER, PRECINT,
>SPECIAL AGENT "NICK NAME", CIA ANALYST "CODE NUMBER" AND THE NAME OF YOUR
>FAVORITY DOG.

Could you elaborate further? What kind of documents do you require to
establish non-cop status? Is there an internationally recognized form I
can fill out?

Also, how does the dog come into this? That sounds intriguing...

>> 2. What do you mean by "persecuted"? Are they following you around? Call you

>> bathroom windows and get driven to the airport late at night?
>AND SNIFFING SHIT IN THE TOILET...LITTLE ZODIAC WILL BE UNDERNEATH
>UNDERCOVER...ALONG THE WORM OLAECHEA ("HIS HEROE").

Hmmm... This is a little unclear, too. Are you saying part of the
harassment is sniffing toilets, Marci? Or am I the one sniffing toilets?
What does "underneath undercover" mean? Is that like a "sub-sub-agent"? Or
is that a reference to the toilet seat cover? Are you saying that there is
also a worm in the toilet? Or is the worm also a sub-sub-agent?

>> confirmation of facts is essential to reportage.
>YOU ARE SO OBVIOUS OFFICER: YOU WILL CALL...OR MAKE BELIEVE THAT YOU CALL
>THEN WILL CLAIM: "IT IS A FAKE, MY HEROE WON" "PLEASE MALACKI DON'T EXPOSE
>MY NOTORIOUS LAIR OLAECHEA." AMEN.

Hmmm... this is unclear, too. But I think you are saying I shouldn't call,
so I will respect your wishes. If I have misinterpreted your wishes,
please advise.

I look forward to your clarifications and your continued understanding!

Thanks!

Ken.
