A week or so ago, Ken Steele mentioned in passing FWAKE-L, a newsgroup
devoted exclusively to Joyce's FINNEGANS WAKE. Does Ken or anyone else
perchance have its full BITNET address? Thanks,

Dear friends:

I have been a member of the Humanist "Club" for the past 2 months,
and I guess the time has come for me to gather courage and join in the act.

Needless to say, I enjoyed most of the messages that I read and I would li
ke to commend those who started the Humanist. For us here, in Beer Sheva, it
is a window on the wide world and helps us to keep abreast with what is going o
on elsewhere besides politics and politics. It also turned out that I learned
a lot about Humanitieis, the MLA, the exposure to different viruses, and the
possibility of being beamed out from our orbit by the nasty and greedy telephon
e company. (I used to live in the States prior to de-regulation= life was simp
ler and CHEAPER then). So, I am basically a Humanist and I want to continue to
be so, despite the fact that professionally I am not in the Humanities.
As you may have seen from my submitted cv in November, I am a political socio-
logist interested in ethnic relations and Sephardi studies. And I am therefore
interested to know if there is a Social Scientists Club comparable to that of
the Humanist anywhere.

I would appreciate any information on this and any suggestions you may have.
In the meantime, keep up the good work and the Humanists on the ball!

Thanks everyone, Maurice.
