Dear Taxacomers,
        As I have not seen this news generally distributed except on
BUG-NET and to some of Byron's friends and colleagues, I am passing on this
very sad news for those interested.  I have no more information that that
given below (from Monday afternoon) at this time.
                                                        Jim Whitfield
