	  CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. - Anti-nuclear activists pledged Tuesday
	  to wade across alligator-infested swamps and parachute onto
	  a launch pad to stop the planned launch next year of a NASA
	  plutonium-powered spacecraft....

   And the following "advertisement" circulated throughout NASA e-mail
   shortly thereafter: 
	  WANTED TO BUY: 10,000 alligators. No reasonable offer refused.
	  Transportation costs negotiable.
