Published material, in magazines, newsapers on the radio etc., contains a wealth of information of interest to the campaign. It may be articles with news of ongoing activities in, say, the film world. It may be published statements which crystallise (no pun intended) a view which is relevant. Or it may be something which is just there for fun with (admittedly) only the vaguest connections. If you have anything which may fit these rather loose categories, let me know via the return e-mail page.
