So I looked.

Would or could someone play curator or librarian and describe or  catalogue 
the photocopy precisely, with perhaps a suggestion of a  date?  The difference 
between an original Ray Johnson and a photocopied Ray  Johnson is the 
difference between an original and a copy.  An original  copy needs to be 
annotated as 
much as an original anything.  The word  "xerox" is used generically, but 
when he had a grant of money, Ray rented a  Minolta copier.  Grays get greyed 
on some photocopiers more than  on others.  Surely people involved with 
mail-art, hors commerce, do  not want to commit the errors of sellers who blur 
facts?  Did Ray mail  this paper to anyone?  What is the evidence?  Did anyone 
add  anything?  What? when? where?  And my joke in 2005?  to take a  joke too 
I am aware of Canada, Eh, & from the $00.10 minimum bid,   Eh, that someone 
who disdains auctions of Johnsoniana, or  mail-art, is making a point, perhaps 
a Canadian joke about  incongruent quantities, or the error in putting a price 
on the  priceless.  After all, only today, in Canada's worst air disaster,  a 
two-seater Cessna 152 crashed into a cemetery early this morning in central  
Newfoundland.  Search and rescue workers have recovered 829 bodies so far.
