(note: while this is part of the Schiavo case I'm
forwarding it over for the very specific spam related issue,
not to reopen the rest of the painful sequence /db)


"An article last Tuesday about the decision by the parents of
Terri Schiavo to let a conservative direct-mailing firm sell a
list of their financial supporters referred incorrectly to the
price the firm would charge. It is $150 per thousand names or
e-mail addresses [a], not $150 a month for all of them.
(The list consists of 6,000 names and 4,000 e-mail addresses.)

original article:

[a] that's $0.15, or 15 cents/name
Knowledge may be power, but communications is the key
