Like _Twin Falls Idaho_, which played in Indianapolis for 1 week.

BTW, if any of you wondered about my requests for _The Hidan of
Maukbeiangjow_, it was retitled _Invasion of the Girl Snatchers_ by
Jeffrey C. Hogue in 1985 and was once avaialable on video.  I did manage
to find a copy for rent.

response of someone else.  Love is divine energy that comes from God and
has no end."  --Eric Butterworth
