Weeeeelllllll, consider that with this:


 From: bookrack@na.rim.or.jp (Marvin Harvest)
 Subject: Recycled Books
 Date: 1996/10/31
 Message-ID: <AE9EDA149668D611@ppp121.na.rim.or.jp>#1/1
 organization: THE BOOK RACK

Same name, Japanese addresses.

The Book Rack is a real Japanese book store (or was).

Thin, but it doesn't look like a creationist "diatribe" nor like spam.
