Note From Tom

I want to express my gratitude to those of you who have been kind enough to enquire about my health and for your good wished for my recovery.

It has been a difficult 3 weeks, but I am happy to report that I am back at my desk and more inspired more than ever to fight against the lies, propaganda and horror that we laughingly call civilization.

I will need a little time to catch up on recent events and I sure that within a few days I can have this service back to normal.

I am humbled by your support, your kind words of appreciation and your desire for ICH to continue to fight for peace and justice.

Tom Feeley
