Permit me to congratulate you on the excellence of your presentation and
arguments. I quite agree with what you have said, but there will be a few
who will have theri noses badly out of joint after reading what you gave
said. You are guilty of a couple of sins, at least: One is being logical,
and is probably the more serious crime. The other is smashing icons, which
is itself unforgivable. But this old dog supports your position.
