- Dear Friend of CNI News,
- The upcoming issue of CNI News, which will be sent to
you by midday on June 1, will be the last you will receive. Undoubtedly
this will come as a surprise to many readers, especially those of you who
have only recently subscribed or renewed your subscription. Let me say
that I'm surprised as well. Until recently, I was anticipating a very different
course of action, keeping CNI News as a central focus of my work.
- But just a few weeks ago, something quite extraordinary
happened. I was offered an opportunity to join a dynamic new media project
that will, I believe, soon reach a far larger audience than CNI News ever
could. At the moment, this project is still in development and remains
mostly confidential. However, I can tell you that it will focus in a scientific
way upon a wide range of important issues relating to the human future,
including various kinds of mysterious or anomalous phenomena. I can also
tell you that my part in this project will be as a writer and editor, much
as I've been with CNI News and my other online journal, Global Situation
Report. Much of what I produce will appear on the web.
- Within a few weeks, it will be possible to tell you more
about this new project, and I look forward to that. For now, it seems best
to bring CNI News to an orderly, though somewhat hasty, conclusion and
make way for exciting new work ahead.
- Because the UFO subject is often associated with secrecy
and seems to inspire paranoia in some people, please accept my firm assurance
that I welcome this new opportunity and have not been "bought off,"
intimidated nor in any way coerced into shutting down CNI News. Nor has
my interest in the UFO subject diminished, even though UFOs will not be
a central focus of this new project. I am convinced that this opportunity
will enable me to pursue many issues I care about in a more powerful and
productive way than ever before.
- Let me also assure you that every paid subscriber will
receive a full cash refund for the unused portion of his or her subscription.
The refund process will take some time but is already underway, and your
patience will be appreciated. Those who are owed the most will be refunded
first. More information on this will be sent to you shortly.
- Those of you who are long-time subscribers surely realize
that CNI News has been for me not just a job but a project of the heart.
It has brought me many friends and endless fascination. I do hope my efforts
as editor have been worthy of your support and trust.
- Please accept my sincere thanks for your interest, your
caring and your support. Best wishes to you for a healthy, peaceful, safe
and gratifying future.
- Michael Lindemann Editor, CNI News
- P.S. One more thing. Because this message is going out
to a very large number of people, you can actually do me a very big favor
by NOT responding, unless
- From Royce J. Myers III
- It is with great sorrow to learn that Michael Lindemann
will no longer be producing CNI News. CNI News has been, by far, a corner
stone serving the UFO community with an outstanding and highly professional
source for UFO news. If UFOlogy ever had a CNN, CNI News was most definitely
it bringing much needed attention and credibility to the subject matter
- I remember when Michael first announced his online project,
later revamping it into CNI News. It created quite a buzz within the UFO
community and Michael worked endlessly devoting over 70 hours a week to
getting it going. Many e-mail boxes will not be the same without receiving
CNI News and many, many more people will miss Michael's outstanding work.
But with an end, there is a beginning. I'm sure Michael is excited about
his new project and I anxiously await seeing the finished product.
- I wish Michael nothing but the best in whatever he does.
He has truly been a credit to UFOlogy and I thank him for his unselfishness,
the many issues of CNI News we were blessed with, his endless devotion
and his many positive contributions. Thank you, Michael.
