What is TAPCIS? I really hope you won't leave us. What do you all
say? Should we create a D.O.N. fund (= Don On the Net) to keep him
here if we D.O.N.-ate enough?

Great, that was what I was hoping for, even though I thought that you
would use "Thelma" instead. There's another question on canon: should
only published stories count? I think that private notes like Barks's
family tree don't carry the same weight as published stories, and I
guess you agree then. (Then whatabout censored stories? Are they
canon? And when the editor changed something, is it the original
unpublished version that is canon?)

Then it's strange that Donald dresses up as Jake in "Christmas for
Shacktown" to fool Scrooge and that he falls for it, isn't it?

I'm looking forward to that!
