I do not question your sincerity for the type of inquiry you are involved
with. But it seems that there are too many doing what you are doing. It is
true that one person may be all that is needed to make a breakthrough in any

of "research?" I like to learn, that is why I read most of what I read. I
even listen to Farrakhan. I like first hand info.
