Dear friends, family, and business associates,
Please disregard the spam message you received _apparently_ from me this evening. I have a new Internet Service Provider -- Comcast -- and I'm not sure if they're to blame or if it's an issue with Yahoo, but someone hijacked my account and sent out bogus messages to everyone on my address list between 9:35 and 9:49 p.m. Central Time tonight. I regret any inconvenience or confusion this may have caused.
Thank you very much,
