FOURTH EDITION

MR. C. D. STACK--THE FAMED AND RESPECTED SPACE PILOT --DIED ON JANUARY 22, 3065--HE RISKED HIS LIFE MANY TIMES IN SPACE TRAVEL--BUT DIED PEACEFULLY IN HIS HOME-ON PLANET 'HACKER'--SURVIVED BY HIS WIFE 'MONITOR' AND SON 'PORT'----

CD HAD BEEN GIVEN ONE HOUR OF INFORMATION FROM A STRANGE PLANET AS HE WAS NEAR THE RANGE LIMIT OF HIS SHIP--HE WAS TOLD TO RECORD THIS AND DO WITH IT WHAT HE THOUGHT WOULD BE THE PROPER THING TO DO--HE NEVER TOLD ANYONE ABOUT THIS -HE HAD DESTROYED THE RECORDING--HOWEVER HIS WIFE 'MONITOR' HAD HEARD THE MESSAGE IN SECRET AND KEPT IT TO HERSELF--NOW CD WAS DEAD--WHAT SHOULD SHE DO ? THE MESSAGE WOULD SURELY BE BAD FOR ANYONE THAT HEARD IT--THAT IS WHY CD HAD DESTROYED THE RECORDING AND NEVER TOLD ANYONE ABOUT IT--THIS WAS SOMETHING THAT AS THEY SAY-"YOU ARE BETTER OFF NOT KNOWING THIS"-

CD'S WIFE MONITOR NOW HAD TO MAKE THE DECISION TO TELL OR NOT TO TELL---SINCE SHE WAS WEALTHY--SHE ARRANGED TO HAVE A LONG RANGE SPACE SHIP AT HER DISPOSAL--AND SHE AND HER SON LEFT THE PLANET HACKER TO FIND THE STRANGE PLANET THAT GIVEN CD THE MESSAGE--SHE FOUND THE PLANET AND LANDED THERE--SHE INFORMED THE AUTHORITIES WHO SEE WAS AND HER HUSBAND CD HAD DIED AND HAD NEVER REVEALED THE MESSAGE THEY GAVE HIM--AND THAT SHE HAD OVERHEARD THE MESSAGE WITHOUT CD KNOWING SHE DID SO--BUT SHE HAD KEPT THE MESSAGE TO HERSELF JUST AS CD HAD DONE--

THE AUTHORITIES BELIEVED HER--AND SAID THEY DID NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH THE INFORMATION--THEY GAVE IT TO CD BECAUSE HE WAS SUCH A WISE MAN-THEY FELT HE WOULD KNOW WHAT TO DO---SINCE HE DID NOT REVEAL THE MESSAGE--THE AUTHORITIES ON THIS STRANGE PLANET ALSO DECIDED TO REVEAL IT TO NO ONE--

MONITOR AND HER SON SET UP THERE HOME ON THIS PLANET AND NEVER WENT BACK TO THE PLANET 'HACKER'--MONITORS HOME PLANET WAS EARTH--GIVEN SOME TIME TO PONDER THESE THINGS--SHE WOULD MAKE MORE DECISIONS LATER--WITH EVER EFFORT TO DEAL WITH THE MESSAGE AS CD WOULD WANT HER TO SO--

THIS MESSAGE WOULD SURELY CAUSE PANIC AND HORROR--MONITOR WISHED SHE HAD NOT OVERHEARD THIS MESSAGE THAT WAS INTENDED FOR CD ONLY----
