Thank you for the opportunity to respond to your concerns.

I am sorry that you have taken issue with our television commercial,
"Oz".  Please rest assured that the sole purpose of this advertisement
is to humorously convey the extensive global reach of FedEx.

We strive to portray our company in a responsible manner in all of our
marketing initiatives.  To that end, we conferred with national health
and toxicology authorities about the content of "Oz" prior to the ad's
production.  They confirmed to us that there are no known health
threats depicted in this ad.

As a responsible advertiser, we make every effort to ensure that all
of our ads are appropriate for our business audience.  We are also
supporters of the Family Friendly Programming Forum, an organization
committed to ensuring the existence of a family friendly television
environment.

Please know that we take our role as a good corporate citizen very
seriously.  We do it not only because it is the right thing to do, but
because we live, work and raise our children in the same communities
as you.  Thank you for your concern.

Sincerely,



James R Lyski
FedEx Vice President
U.S. Marketing
