I have a question (not about the above article) I´ve always read Chucks weekly column via my oldies but goodies radio station mainly because for some reason it´s always posted at least a day befoe I get it on e-mail or it´s posted on Weird Universe. Since Chuck retired 3 - 4 weeks ago (and the column disappeared) a new column has been posted on Chucks News of the Weird page each week. What gives? (not that I´m complaining) Scroll down to the links to get to Chuck Shepards News of the Weird and then click on The News to get the latest column.

F.U.D. -- that's a really good question! My first reaction was that they must be recycling his old columns. But no, it's obviously recent news that's being posted. Plus, the column no longer has Chuck's signature dry wit.

Universal Uclick, which syndicated the column, must have got themselves a Chuck substitute. I have an idea who it is. But I'll ask Chuck. I'm not sure if he's aware of this.

Alex.. I went back and checked and directly below the last news entry on todays column is an e-mail address to submit news tips and it´s not the address you get upon clicking "submit news" at the very bottom of the page that directs you to Chuck.

Word from Chuck is that Universal Uclick decided to continue writing the column "in house" -- but Chuck himself has nothing to do with it any longer.

I hope he´s getting royalties of some kind as they´haven´t changed the page in any way to indicate that he isn´t associated with it anymore.

Ditto on the newsoftheweird discussion. I noticed the contact is now Sue Rousch. Not the same wit, but as they say, all good things must come to an end eventually.

Back to Ms Pitt, she seems to be a fellow scholar of Mr. Leary. Far out man.
