Port Of Call Newsletter

POC is the bimonthly Intertel region 7 newsletter. Intertel is a Hi-IQ society, and region 7 covers the Northwest USA and Western Canada. I've been editor of POC since April 1994, and have published over 100 letters, articles and features from POC on the Web! Some of the topics explored in POC have been: politics, Attention Deficit Disorder, skydiving, artificial intelligence, the meaning of life, the care and feeding of bagpipes, the tragedy of Bosnia, gun control, freedom of speech on the Internet, government abuse of power, defense of liberty, factoids, quotes, etc. Warning - POC is a free thought journal written for an intelligent readership. Most of the contents are unabashedly politically incorrect.
