They have planted cameras in my house along with god knows how many other surveillance devices. I would ask that you contact as many people as you can and tell them to visit my beloved Organization... Yall know the address right? I caught them redhanded and am not leaving my location until either they come up with vast sums of money of which now... if you help me some of which will be given to you for your help. I am not kidding and this IS NOT A JOKE!!! However by asking for your help you get placed into this situation as well... Emmis has got the cash to deal with or they woudnt have tryed this silly little stunt of theirs. PLEASE DO NOT INGORE MY PLEAS, I really need the help. I have sent many of the details of this to dedicated friends for security purposes, just to give me a hole card. Ya know, if you hurt me or anybody I know this gets plastered everywhere... I have not told you gentelmen the details, for obivious reasons. Last year I know you Radioman got a Arbiton diary... and you know that this has A LOT to do with it. Thank you fine sirs for your most prompt action. Sincerely, M. Patrick Gansert (aka Spike)
