Thanks Geoff!  When putting the article together, LFI asked for a selection 
of photos from which they chose the ones used in print based to a large 
degree on how they would fit in the layout.  I should also mention that the 
text of the interview was originally in English then apparently translated 
to German for editing (to fit the layout) then back to English.  Double 
translation... a little was lost but not enough to change the basic ideas.

Doug Herr
Birdman of Sacramento
