Fun_people may recognize the name "The Internet TourBus" from bits of
their e-mail service that I have excerpted for Fun_People from time to time.
TOURBUS picks one or two web sites per issue and describes them in some
depth, with an eye to making cool Internet features accessible to both
beginners and experts. They also feature some silly stuff like the Southern
Word of the Day. For example (from 3/8/96):
> TODAY'S SOUTHERN WORD OF THE DAY
> MERINGUE - Noun. A piece of jewelry worn on the finger.
> Usage: "Ju like meringue?"
> (Special thanks goes to Michael Sullins for today's wurd)
Well the TOURBUS may go overboard on the silly side next Thursday when
they include a mention of Fun_People. Eeek! If you'd like to subscribe to

I hope this doesn't mean my ISP (or my mailbox) will be swamped with
requests, but if there is some interruption in the next week, you'll know
why... Wish us luck!
