Press Release

Press Releases sent to: Are these getting sent to email, fax, or by snail mail, or a combination? Also...don't forget to look at the Media contact list for other outlets. I'd like to help send these out, but let me know if there's a system so I don't duplicate efforts. -Pete 11:26, 30 Apr 2006 (PDT)
