Our "Request" goes out for GRASSROOTS SUPPORT from ALL of you! We, at "The Shuster Project," are pleased to announce that we are now at the stage where we are ready to offer up our first BOOK for publication ... and we NEED your help! As you will easily realize when you review "The Shuster Project" web site, there is NO OTHER DOCUMENTATION such as ours that BLOWS the lid off of tobacco industry fraud and false claims crimes ... PERIOD! As such, we already anticipate encountering the "fears" and "biases" that come along with getting such a controversial book into publication for the American Public. It has taken a little over TEN YEARS to get this documentation to such an organized status and the time is NOW to get it in front of the American Public! When you check out the "CORRESPONDENCE" pages and the "PRESS RELEASE" pages, alone, you will immediately see who, in "Government" and at "Justice," at the State and Federal levels, continues to attempt to cover-up their total absence of action by NOT addressing these significant crimes and the awesome and enormous sums of defrauded State and Federal revenues involved ... including HUNDREDS of municipalities, who have also taken sizeable hits to their revenue streams by the tobacco companies. Once you have taken the time to review "The Shuster Project" web site in earnest, and in it's entirety, and if you feel, as a grammar school, high school or university student, parent, teacher or professor, that a book/textbook on these issues would more fully supplement and more fully enhance your knowledge on these startling, significant, current and relevent issues, the complete subject matter and all supporting materials of which would be presented to you for the very first time anywhere, in their entirety, given the many exurpts that you are finding here, that you should feel free, and with our blessings, to write to any credible publisher(s) of your choosing and indicate your feelings to them that our book should be published by them and that they should contact us, immediately, in order to begin that process. The staff and supporters of "The Shuster Project" readily admit that we can use all of the GRASSROOTS SUPPORT that we can get in order to realize the publication of our authenticated book on this subject matter and we are grateful to ALL of you that choose to assist us. We, at "The Shuster Project," are totally committed and dedicated, on your behalf, to realizing the publication of our first book by the end of the year 2004 - into 2005 and we are absolutely confident that with your help and support and the help of our dedicated GRASSROOTS SUPPORTERS, we WILL succeed! Enough said ... now, on to the rest of the Award-winning "The Shuster Project" web site content ...
