Seems to me that JMS is keeping plenty to donate to a museum if/when
the time
comes.

It might be worth mentioning that I think the Medal, and the painting
by Peter, are going to be the last really big items. I think I'll keep
it to more reasonable stuff after that, mainly scripts, director's
cuts, and at the most there's a PPG and a link that might go...but
beyond that, I think I'll pull it back. So what's out now goes out,
but after that...not so much.

I still hope that he is taking some of this and putting back towards
worthy causes.

This is the only time I hope to talk about this.

One of the things I almost never discuss is the issue of charities,
because I'm of the school that says what you do, you do privately, you
don't make a show of it. Otherwise you're doing it for all the wrong
reasons...it becomes "looka me, how magnanimous I am!" I've never
believed in that.

So for as long as I can remember, I've always tithed about ten percent
of my income -- sometimes more, sometimes less, depending on the work
that year -- to a variety of causes. Mostly women's shelters, some
hospices, Aids Project LA, the Red Cross, the Salvation Army, PEN
International, amnesty international, a handful of others. And there's
other stuff that nobody will EVER know about because I do it
anonymously, which is the way it's supposed to be, at least from my end
of things.

And that, I hope, will be the last I ever have to say on the issue.

Just an FYI to anyone who bid on this stuff...somebody at
birlikis1@yahoo.com has been emailing bidders to tell them that he's me
and that buyer A bailed or couldn't make it so they're being offered a
second chance to get it. Be warned, this is a fraudulent email.
