Subject: The X-Files wants (needs?) Dick Weltz

As many of you know, the opening credits of _The X-Files_ ends with a
large centered all-caps "THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE". Sometimes the tag
changes when appropriate to the episode; tonight's involved Nazis, and
the tag was "DIE WAHRHEIT IST" something; "the truth is out there" auf

Write your local Fox affiliate and tell them you're shocked and
