Baron Bors,
    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 
more clearly. I apologize for my over reaction however their are certain 
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.

In Service
Sir Richard ap Morgan
