  With the end of Crusade and the great reduction in the volume of
  posts by JMS, I have decided the time has come to discontinue
  production of the Digest. I will continue to collect and repost any
  JMS traffic through at least the end of September, but unless SciFi
  (or somebody) picks up Crusade and the message volume increases the
  Digest will end no later than the end of this year. What a ride it
  has been!

I wonder how many people would have believed him unless he allowed
himself to be scanned. And then, no one would believe a teep anyway.

I believe that teep's (everybody's?) DNA is on file, so a DNA test
could have been done to confirm the claim.  Not that Bester would have
wanted this, of course; he was quite happy with the irony.

(Incidentally, I wonder if this is a plot gap.  Given that genetic
information about teeps is on file, and given that all teeps were
supposed to register with PsiCorps when Bester was discovered as a
foundling, it would be natural for the Corps to do a genetic test on
Bester, and foundlings in general, to see if their bloodline was known.
Otherwise unregistered teeps might slip through PsiCorps' net, either
by accident or design.)

      Except, of course, that as I recall (and my memory could be off
here), Bester's parents were never part of the Corps, and thus would
not have had their DNA on file there.
