[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: Does anyone remember the old parlor
game we used to play as kids? I think the name of the game was
'Murder' and it was about this wealthy, rich old geezer who had been
murdered in his home, which was a mansion-like place. Using cards and
dice, and moving tokens around on a board accordingly, we kids had to
use logic and the process of elimination to guess the three cards
hidden from view: (1) who murdered the old gentleman, (2) the way his
murder was committed, and (3) the room of the house it happened in. By
looking at your cards, the tokens on the board and thinking about
previous incorrect answers, we junior detectives had to announce to
the other players out loud, "I suggest that (victim) was murdered with
(weapon: gun, knife, candleobera or other blunt instrument) in the
(room: kitchen, parlor, library, den, bedroom, etc) by (criminal: the
butler, the cook, Colonel Mustard, Mrs. Green, others). The person who
made the right choices won of course, but a wrong choice got the
player eliminated. Today's 'Last Laugh' is brought to us by Danny
Burstein who tells us the true story of the victim (Vardan Kushnir)
who was murdered in his apartment, apparently with a blunt instrument,
but police have not been able to figure out _who_ the perpetrator was.
Personally I doubt they are looking very hard either. PAT]

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: Funeral arrangements have not been
announced; they are still pending. That, you see, is how spammers in
Russia are dealt with; a good, effecient dispatch of their rotten
souls if I do say so myself. A prompt cremation of his earthly remains
and all his spam with him should follow and assure he burns in Hell
forever in his special, reserved spot. PAT]
