LIEBERMAN AND THE LIBRARIAN, PART I CORRECTION
The Librarian issues a brief and red-faced correction to LIEBERMAN AND THE LIBRARIAN, PART I, where she had mistakenly said the series was four parts instead of three. LIBRARIAN TRIVIA: This is the last post by The Librarian that isn't PGP-signed. (Except a few times when she forgot, and usually corrected. PGP is "Pretty Good Privacy," an encryption utility.) The reason she started PGP-signing is that there was, around this time, a sudden rash of attempted forgeries of The Librarian, as is explained in her next message.:

Subject: LIEBERMAN AND THE LIBRARIAN, PART I--CORRECTION
I am, like, *so* embarrassed I could just as-*is*!
I was so tired when I finished the THREE-part "LIEBERMAN AND THE
LIBRARIAN" series, that I missed this *total* goof. In "LIEBERMAN AND
THE LIBRARIAN, PART I," I wrote:

Well, that was when I thought it would have to be FOUR parts, and
then, after I wrote that, I managed to squeeze it into THREE parts.
And then I didn't go back and CORRECT where I had written FOUR!
<Tsk!> I am *definitely* going to try blonde next summer. In the
meantime, somebody is just going to *have* to spank me.
Anywa-a-a-a-ays. There are only THREE parts. Sorry.
