Thank you for your response I had hoped that this was your intent. I had
recognized the quote; it was just a bit curious the way you cut it off. I
like the current redaction much better. I believe it states your aims much

concepts that I feel must be dealt with directly. I hope that you have taken
no offence and that we may share a drink and a toast when next we meet.
