CCRG Correspondence File - The Statistics

The announcements of impending legal action (either civil or criminal) or mentions of my non-existent criminal record

Mr O'Neill has threatened legal action against me many times, or claimed that the police (or someone) is pursuing me. The Gutless Anonymous Liar has often mentioned legal action or police interest too, so I have included those messages just for completeness.

And one last thing ... (4/5/2013)
I hoped it wasn't someone playing a cruel April Fool's joke when I saw this news in the Ottawa Citizen on April 1.

Yes, folks, the beloved William P O'Neill of the Canadian Cancer Research Group and its descendants has gone to the great cesspit in the sky, taking the Gutless Anonymous Liar with him. Sadly, he died quickly and not of cancer. I posted a message to his memorial guest book, but unfortunately some technical glitch prevented it from being published.

II will maintain my own memorial to him here by archiving his correspondence with me and also the wonderful messages he sent wearing his Gutless Anonymous Liar mask. It would be a tragedy for this valuable collection of literature to disappear.
