To keep Mouthmag.Com all up-to-date, we'd need to hire a team of web professionals, and that's out of the question on Mouth's barebones budget. Yours truly must do it all.

Should you wish back issues in alternate format tape or large print or to subscribe offline, call Cal at 785-272-2578, or write Mouth, PO Box 558, Topeka, KS 66601-0558.
Calling all black cats: this issue marks the beginning of Mouth's thirteenth year, and the beginning of our reinvention too. Thanks, everybody, for sticking by us, seeing us through.
