Calling All Ghosts

     Perhaps you remember the moment in The Mystery of the Stuttering Parrot when Bob and Jupiter, together, invent the Ghost-To-Ghost hookup? As Jupiter points out, the scheme could be used for contacting people “all the way from here to the Atlantic Ocean, if necessary. That would make it a Coast-To-Coast Hookup. But such a phrase has been used in the past by the television and radio networks. I prefer to be distinctive. So we will call ours a Ghost-To-Ghost Hookup.” In the Ghost-To-Ghost Hook-up, each of the Three Investigators calls five friends and asks each of the friends to call five more friends, and asks those in turn to call five more, and so on, until as Jupiter puts it, “we get results.” Well, here are the results, so far, of the Ghost-to-Ghost Hookup which has been going on all around the world since the Internet took the place of the telephone. Greetings to all Ghosts already known to us, and please, if we don’t know you, send us information on any web site or chat room dedicated to the Three Investigators.

     If you don’t have a web site or a chat room -- or know of any new ones -- you could still take part in the Ghost-to-Ghost Hookup by doing what the boys did originally. Let five of your friends know the boys are now living, at least some of the time, in cyberpsace. Ask your five friends to tell five of their friends, and so on and so forth. As we all know by now -- and as Bob said in The Mystery of the Stuttering Parrot -- a Ghost-to-Ghost Hookup is “pure dynamite”!
