We're joining the International Banana Club, but it's not clear how to pay for this--the color of the money isn't certain.
A motion to have those responsible for the credits sacked along with those responsible for having them sacked, sacked...chickens.
CPW is coming. ESP wants to throw a 4th-floor block party. Now that is something MITSFS can really show itself off at. There's an organization meeting Monday, 8pm, after spring break. We will have an inflatable castle. Sam suggests we should instead half an inflatable castle, and this is accepted as a friendly amendment mid-vote. Passes 15-0-2 plus Spehn. If we nest them, we can have a castle in the air!
The UA is doing strange revisions to old-ASA policies.
Andre Norton has passed away. In accordance with her wishes, she will be cremated with copies of her first and last novels.
The BBC radio-play adaptation of Neuromancer is available at
http://www.tubeville.org/neuromancer/neuro.htm. The first five
minutes are the sound of a television tuned to a dead channel.
MITSFS is only nominally a fan organization. The majority of the membership are wierdos who actually read the stuff and belong only because of the library. Those who cannot read form the activist, or meeting-going, members. Those who can neither read nor write contribute to TZ. Among this motley meagerie are a few fen who somehow have missed being committed. So TZ, whatever it may be, only pretends to be a fanzine.We have a really pretty cover, but it's got a misspelling. Maybe we'll find some way to fix it.

Mobcomm: yet more books shall be purchased.
On April 29, the movie will be out.
Insane nattering proceeds, invoking a Miller Motion which fails 11-17-18 plus Spehn.
An inaudible motion fails by Skinnerial miscounting.
AFC suggests that 1+1 be set equal to 3 so that we can have a banana motion that both passes, fails, and chickens. This passes and chickens, but somehow does not fail, 25-7-3 plus Spehn.
Meeting adjourned, 1800 SST.
