    "WWN" = "Weekly World News," a famous U.S. supermarket tabloid.  Once
    published a front-page photo of Rush Limbaugh meeting with aliens who
    pleaded with him to run for the presidency.  Jeez, tell me you guys
    didn't get hoodwinked? will cover the WWN-predicted death of the Internet in
    tomorrow's column.  We'll name eight respectable experts you've
    definitely heard of -- all of whom side with WWN about the fate of the
    Internet.  It'll be one of our wildest columns to date...

    Has anyone on ISN ever heard of Mr. Masford? I haven't been able to
    find any references to him on the Web, and no one in the DC area with
    whom I've spoken knows anything about him.  I'm beginning to believe
    he may be related to "Captain Tuttle."
