This is a very old request that's been going around literally for
YEARS.  Craig isn't 7 yo any more nor is he dying.  He already got the 
record number of cards and really doesn't need any more.  Unfortunately, 
because this is still floating around, he and his family still receive 
several thousand pieces of mail every day.  Don't send any cards, 
please!   This is so common that there is an FAQ posted about it on the 
newsgroup alt.folklore.urban.  I'll be happy to send it to anyone who is
