"Not The Program" For July 16, 2012

This is not the next installment of this program. Due to a confluence of circumstances, we instead present the story "The Man In The Moon" by George Lefferts that aired in the 1950s radio program Dimension X. Regular programming is currently expected to resume next week after we receive clarification on the public relations tasking Erie Looking Productions is taking on and other detached duties are resolved.
