The Geller Saga goes on....

I've been informed that the publishing house in Japan that Mr. Geller
sued has settled out-of-court, for an "undisclosed" amount of money.
If it's anything like the other amounts he's been "winning," I don't
think he can retire yet. The RAI TV network in Italy has every reason
to believe that Mr. Geller does not have a case against them for
giving me a copy of one of the more "evidential" videotapes of
Mr. Geller's performance there. (Mind you, that's what HE is claiming
they did. Who knows what really happened? Also, the designation
"evidential" is not Mr. Geller's description of the videotape. Just
so we understand.) In Switzerland, I managed to obtain some archival
video footage showing VERY interesting close-ups of some spoons BEFORE
Mr. Geller is supposed to ever have touched them. The European TV
system (known as PAL) has much higher definition than the US system,
and, gee! that material is REAL interesting! I just got back from
Australia and New Zealand, where some more very interesting material
came up. I must thank my many friends in all these places and on the
hotline list for going out of their ways to dig up the material I
need. I don't know when the next notice will go out to geller-hotline,
but following September 2nd there should be a really interesting one.
