And then there is a list of issues and questions. In
response to your concerns?I won't list them here, I would
like to add that I too would like to see more discussion of
the topics you presented, but the issues presented are
essentially rhetorical ones. They raise questions about the
nature of the message and who created it, how and to whom
the message is delivered, and the impact that the message
has on the audience.

In any case, I would be happy to see you promote discussion
of these issues.
