Publisher's Statement :
The Ugly American is published whenever. You can hope for three a year, but we make no promises, homeboy. It costs $3.00 to get this through the mail, nothing less. If you send a dollar, we'll just tear less than a bucks' worth off (to cover postage) and mail it to you. If you want the piece you didn't get, just provide the difference, punk. Zine trading isn't encouraged, unless it's for some form of sick, twisted pornography. Ad rates are available upon request, so check your bank account before inquiring. Unsolicited reviews will get you nowhere. Send anything for review (records, tapes, videos, etc.) at your own risk. Remember, it's your funeral...
