It is too bad that somebody out there has to get his "kicks" trying to make somebody else look bad, especially when they don't have enough guts to sign the letter themselves. My wife and I met with Jerry and his wife last year in Boston, Jerry does not stike as capable of writing slanderous letters. Hopefully everybody on this list will come to Jerry's defense. Thank You, Peter Naiman
