Dear Dr. Gillogly --
An old friend of mine, Robert S. Richmond, and I were having a discussion on the Voynich Manuscript, and he noted,
>None of the serious workers on the VMS believes that a single
>word of it has yet been read. I sent you Jorge Stolfi's summary of what is
>known. - To subscribe to the list, write to Jim Gillogly at
Is this a discussion-by-e-mail digest? I'm not heavily into what my friend refers to as "the VMS," but I'd be at least interested in finding out what the latest speculations are.

P.S.: Are you the James J. Gillogly who cracked the cipher written by Robert H. Thouless based on the keywords black and beauty? I ask because the accompany picture showed the cryptanalyst who'd done so holding a Captain Midnight Mystery Dial Code-O-Graph, and that radio show is one of my specialties.
