Thanks for your comments. I consider writing about these events a challenge and an opportunity to exercise rational thought and judgment while not stepping on any toes. Not an easy task under the circumstances. Some of the aspects of these topics are delicate and or sensitive, but life is like that. Since there is nothing in it for me either way, I just take the position as journalist reporting what I witnessed. None of those goings on affected my life in any significant way. Just another day in the life of a framebuilder to me. Those who were more involved naturally have a different point of view. I find Jims perspective very interesting, but at the same time I have the ability to converse with other players in the drama who can add more information. As a result of the story I have heard from several people who were involved in one way or another and have been able to add to my understanding of the dynamics of this unusual situation. I feel obligated to tell all that I know as accurately as possible from as many angles as I can gather. It's just good journalism. Sorry if it offends anyone, that's not my intention.

Now, back to our regularly scheduled program.
