It is with deep regret I today received an email message from Dagfinn Føllesdal informing that Willard Van Orman Quine left this world on Christmas Day. Quine visited here in Guovdageaidnu, Norway in the summer of 1970. His publications have been of incomparable importance to my study of philosophy and for some published points of view. Dagfinn has mailed me a memorial statement that will be filed here at the municipal museum.

[DBQ] Mar 3, 2001 "Hello" (found site through: www.wvquine.org) --- Yesterday's celebration of your father's life was an extraordinary and very moving event. Thank you for the enormous effort (I assume) you put into bringing it about. Thank you also for the valuable web site you've created, which incidentally provides me an easier way to say hello than waiting to shake your hand to offer condolences and praise would have done.
If you think back to your early years spent in Belmont, you may be able to remember me, Fred, and our two daughters, Sandy and Laura. We lived about a block away. Probably not.
Your father was instrumental in my becoming a psychologist, for which I will always thank him. In the fall of 1939, I took his symbolic logic course, intending to become a philosopher. His brilliance was awesome. It made me realize that I could, at best, teach others what I had learned with considerable difficulty from him. Reading Plato, Kant and Whitehead had not been as persuasive.
You may be interested in seeing snapshots of your father in the early 1940's. If so, please get in touch.

This will be a few characters identifying the owner plus the bird's ID number. The American Racing Pigeon Council:
(don't blame me for the spelling)
They should be able to tell you the information if you contact them with the details. Note, some pigeon racers are not very happy with the birds that stay away (they didn't home) and therefore may not have much use for them in another race that they will lose. On the other hand some may want them because of tgheir history or for breeding purposes.
They often nest in a corner in the barn or outside - they build a simple nest if they are breeding or just sleep in the eves if they are not breeding.
I'd be interested in the result....

[DBQ] Apr 9, 2001 "MISREPRESENTATION" (found site through: YAHOO) --- IN THE SPIRIT OF HONEST BUSINESS PRACTICE AND TO SHOW SUPPORT OF LEGAL ACTION TO CORRECT AN ILLEGAL PRACTICE, I HOPE YOUR PUBLICATION WILL BE INTERESTED IN PUBLISHING THIS ACCOUNT OF MISREPRESENTATION AND POSSIBLE FRAUD BY ANTHONY'S STAMPS OF NEW JERSEY. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION, PLEASE CONTACT ME (at) : 805 528 3333.
ACCOUNT OF FACTS
Apparently it is an acceptable practice in the stamp and coin selling industry to misrepresent the actual cash values of collections whether selling on-line or at auction according to Robert of Anthony's Stamps in a recent phone conversation with me.
Hello, my name is Budd Sanford. I am a 100% disabled American who has been a stamp collector for more than 35 years. In October of 2000, I decided to use my love of stamps in an attempt to get off disability income by selling US stamps on the E-Bay, so I sought a viable stock in which to invest my savings.
I carefully watched E-Bay offerings and eventually was attracted to an advertisement by Anthony's Stamps for a large "Important US collection" with a stated Scott Catalogue Value of "$90,000 plus," with an opening bid of $15,900.
I contacted Anthony's, expressed my interest and explained my intentions to begin a business. After discussions with Robert and certain assurances from him, I purchased the collection. Since I was new to selling, I asked Robert to include a list with "suggested beginning bids" for some of the important stamps, which he did.
Upon receipt of the collection, I sat with my 2001 Scott Catalogue and carefully culled it stamp by stamp and confirmed a catalogue value of over $100,000. I then placed the stamps valued at hundred dollars ($100) or more in to individual glassine envelopes and appropriately identified each bas before listing on the E-Bay.
I listed a number of these stamps in good faith on the E-Bay with optimistic enthusiasm based on the significant number of important items being offered at 50% or less of their SCV. These included unused copies of the #10, 67, 85B, 98, 122, 132, 153, 187, 218, 313, and 404, the Zeps and Columbians.
I eventually sold the three (3) Zeps, the unused 153 and some of the lesser value stamps. During this time, the person who purchased the 153 agreed to purchase the unused 98 for $1750, stipulating a PSE Certification prior to completion of transaction and sent a deposit.
While waiting for the Certification of the 98, I received additional deposits from other collectors for the unused #10 (at) $2,000 and unused 67 (at) $14,000 under conditions of PSE Certification. I also began negotiations with a collector for the sale of the balance of the collection who requested PSE certification of 37 specified stamps.
Before I was ready to send the additional stamps to PSE, I received the Certificate for the 98 and was extremely disappointed! It Certified as a "genuine 77P with FAKE PERFORATIONS, GUM and GRILL." A stamp worth maybe $10 instead of $3,000.
I decided to exercise caution and not submit all 37 stamps but rather chose a group that included unused copies of: #10, #67, #85B, #117, #119, #122, #187, # 313 and used copies of the #64 and 64a.
The results were devastating. The #10 certified as an 11. The #67 certified, "used with REMOVED PEN CANCE." The 85B certified, "genuine unused." The unused #117 certified, "used, clean cancel, REGUMMED over sealed tear at bottom and REPORFORATED at Top." The #119 certified "unused, with non-contemporary gum added." The #122 certified "genuine unused, REGUMMED..." The unused #187 certified "used, REMOVED PEN CANCEL and REGUMMED over tiny faults." The #313 certified "genuine unused, o.g." Both the 64 and 64A certified as 65's.
The Gross SCV loss from the original advertised value of "$90,000 plus" was $27,770.
I immediately contacted Anthony's, advised them of the situation and requested they correct they make the following corrections:
1) Replace the #10, 67 and 98 with genuine certifiable copies.
2) Replace any additional stamps certified by PSE that were not as represented with actual copies or other stamps of equal values.
3) Advance cost of Certification for the balance of 27 stamps with the understanding that I would reimburse them for all that Certified genuine and to replace any that certified not as originally represented.
In a phone conversation with Robert, I was informed that Anthony's would agree to replace the #10 and 98 but not the 67. I reminded him that all three stamps had been sold and deposits received. Rather than acknowledging this, he chose to doubt my sale price of $14,000 just before telling me that an unused 67 with Certificate would bring as much as $35,000 at auction.
I suppose that was his way of telling me that they would not even consider replacing the 67 because it was worth much more than the sale price of the collection. This is despite the fact that they had included the SCV of an unused copy to determine their advertised value of the collection and despite the fact that an unused copy had been certified by Robert himself on his "suggested starting bids" list.
I requested they replace the 122 and he said it would not be replaced because it certified as a genuine original and that even though it was REGUMMED, it still had a value. When I asked him what that value was, he said I would be able to sell it for $1500. When I asked the SCV he said that $2500 would be an accurate figure.
When I reminded him that this represented a loss of $6250 over the originally represented amount and requested a stamp or stamps to make up the difference, he said that I had to accept the full SCV of $8750 and that Anthony's would not discuss this stamp.
He then said Anthony's would replace certain stamps with like values but not necessarily the exact replacements, and refused to authorize the other 27 stamps to be Certified. I reminded him that in order to determine and correct any additional misrepresentations, Certification of the additional 27 stamps was necessary and that it was their responsibility to assist.
I reminded him that they had advertised the collection with a "$90,000 + value" with no disclaimers, but under the current circumstances the collection had obviously been misrepresented.
The discussion ended with a promise by Robert to call me back the following day (Friday, March 30) at 5P (PST). I received no call. On Sunday, April 2, I received an e-mail, text below:
In regard to our conversation of March 29, 2001 concerning the US Stamp
collection; as promised we can supply one of the two following things: 1)
You may return the collection intact for a refund in full, or 2) We will
replace anything not authentic with equal catalog value but not necessarily
the same catalog number. Furthermore, you stated you were making a
tremendous profit from your sale of this collection. We certainly cannot
guarantee your profit or resale of the material.
Please advise your election of either option 1 or 2 by close of business,
Tuesday April 3, 2001.
PS Was hoping to call to discuss this with you, but have been called out
of the area."
On Monday, April 2, I called Anthony's and had a brief conversation with someone who said he was "Anthony." I sent him 10 pages of documents detailing and confirming the circumstances of the situation. I also filed a complaint with E-Bay. As of April 7, neither E-Bay nor myself have received a response from Anthony.
Since my conversation with Anthony, I received calls from two of the Buyers concerning their purchases. After updating them on the situation, they both indicated their reluctance to continue waiting without immediate positive results.
I sent a FAX to Anthony requesting an immediate response and received the following e- mail on April 8:
Received your correspondence and was hoping to reply yesterday, but our DSL line went down. As previously stated, we would happily make a full refund for the collection returned intact. Please respond by April 11. We do not wish to carry on a never ending ongoing correspondence.
I have discussed the facts of this case with an attorney who agrees that there is gross misrepresentation with the possibility of fraud (intended or unintended; to be determined) based on the advertised guarantee of a $90,000+ SCV, and that anyone advertising merchandise with any stated value without a disclaimer is liable.
In addition, any Party doing business on the Internet is subject to individual state and Federal laws governing commerce as well as laws of any country where their product is bought or sold. A Party selling any product is responsible for their claims and representations. Any Party who purchases a product, then later represents that product for sale and the product fails to meet the advertised standards, both Parties are liable: the second seller to the current Buyer and the original Seller to the original Buyer.
The original Seller is not only liable for the original value of the product sold but is also liable for any and all costs, expenses and financial losses (if any) incurred by the original Buyer who acted in good faith based on the original representation(s) made by the original Seller.
I borrowed money to invest in this business to get off of the disability income rolls. I believed that the merchandise I purchased had an authentic minimum catalogue value of "$90,000+"as advertised and verbally confirmed by a representative of the Seller.
Because of the misrepresentations by Anthony's Stamps and their refusal to acknowledge and correct their misrepresentations, my fledgling business and reputation has suffered irreparable character and financial losses.
According to Robert of Anthony's, it has been a long standing practice that all people who purchase collections of coins or stamps are forced to accept misrepresentations of value as long as those misrepresentations do not exceed the original selling price, or to accept a remedy that is at the sole discretion of the Seller. He said to me, "If this were Greg Manning Auctions, they would just laugh at you (me)."
It is time to take action to stop this unacceptable and illegal practice and to protect collectors and dealers who have been victimized by these Sellers. To do this it is necessary to file a CLASS ACTION suit in Federal court to seek "Retroactive" financial remedies for all Buyers and hold Sellers liable to obey the existing laws of commerce as they apply to advertising and product representation.
If you have purchased a collection or collections from any source within the past two-years and would care to be a passive participant in this action, please FAX me (at) (805) 528 5555 or e-mail me (at) : GANDALFONE (at) NETZERO.NET for details. Be sure to include your name, e-mail address and any appropriate phone contact numbers.

Would you please help explain it? It appears much the same as the postnet coding except it contains spacing.

We have since fallen out of touch and I would like to re-establish contact. It seems as though "Renter Simpkin" no longer exists as such, and the addresses I have for him do not work.

Moore said good is like the word green or some other such nonsense not to mention that whole "grue" thing of Goodman's, we have lost the swashbuckling philospher-king like Descartes baking himself in an oven or Spinoza grinding lenses inside while the Jewish community buried him in effigy outside. Gone is the flashy showman, replaced by Donald Davidson, a man more resembling a life insurance salesman than a reasoned pursurer of pure thought. And, I know, many of our tenured-for-life guys really like this as the alterntive requires risk. To be paid for the value of your words as assessed by the outside market compared to the width of them in clique-driven redundant publications, well that's where we've been led. W.V.O. Quine's forgiveness is that at least he could write. His prose style could give rise to a smile. So, I hope he rests in peace, but am lead to think what a fine mind like his could have done outside the facile halls of academy. Let's end with a counterfactual: I think if W.V.O. Quine would have spent his time in a high school in South-Central Los Angeles instead of at Harvard University, he would have made more of an impact on society than he did as a Professor of Philosphy.

offer such products. In addition, Accu-Sort Systems is also a leading supplier of high-end
fixed-mount image-based readers for POSTNET and all other popular 1D and 2D symbologies (http://www.accusort.com).
Representing C Technologies (publ), Sweden, and C Technologies US Inc. I
would like to inform you that we in fact do have a suite of products that
work with PostNet and the barcodes used. If fact we have also answered an
inquiry from ViaPostal, Spain, that we have software for our pen-like
handheld devices to make them read the barcodes used in cluding the C-Pen 10. Please feel free to visit our web-site www.cpen.com to
view all our handheld scanning devices.
As far as we know we are the only existing vendor of handheld, mobile
scanning devices that can read the barcodes you represent, and we will
up-date our web-site with that information so it becomes clear.
I would be interested to understand whether you would be interested in
trying out one of our products and also whether you would be interested in
listing it among available handheld barcode-reading scanning devices amongst
your information pages.

Gary and Diann -
Thank you for the guest book message. Very impressive "hobby" - It is remarkable that there are people with the resources
and time to actually get to the bottom of such a puzzle. Just decoding POSTNET is enough to stop most people. On mail,
the 5 digit POSTNET is rare these days. Usually it is the 11 digit which encodes (plus digit 12 for checksum) to the front
door of a residential house (apartments are a little more complex). With that system you could encode a front door of a
one family house with a simple 11 digit barcode. Currently I don't have a good reverse lookup system but knowing the
street address of a house, I can tell whether the 11 digit POSTNET barcode on the the mail is indeed the correct one for
that house. Best regards - Doug
