Dear Mr. President,

     As we mourn the dead from Egyptian Airline Flight 990, we must
recognize again that technical systems do fail from time to time. 
Humans cannot achieve perfection.  An accident involving nuclear
weapons would be incomparably more catastrophic.  We urge you to
take a courageous initiative to call on the leaders of all nuclear
weapons states to disable their nuclear weapons now, before they
may be used because of a technical or human failure.

Sincerely yours,
[Your name, post address & country]

Emailings monthly since July 1996

PS   In October, I took over from Marvin Clark to send out these
monthly mailings.  Due to a mistake on my part, the entire list of
email addresses was accessible to everyone for 15 minutes after the
last mailing on October 12, until I discovered and corrected the
mistake.  Therefore, you received several email messages intended
only for me.  I sincerely apologize for that.  It proves again that
despite the best intentions we are only human, and accidents do
happen.  I wish to thank all those who sent supportive comments. 
Those who asked have been deleted from the list.  My incoming
mailbox was temporarily full and I may have missed a few of those
wishing to be taken off the list.  If that applies to you, please
send me another "delete" request.
With many thanks and best regards, Dietrich Fischer
