Dear Ted

I have already said on the list what I can say, I have no more words  
to say you thank you very much for this really kind message, it and  
you - of course - will always remain in my gratitude!

> HOWEVER! His book "INDIGNATION" is without question, a tribute to

> Yes I wrote a small piece at the front. WHY? Quite simple people.

> So it is with that in mind I'm asking all of you to buy his book!

> Truly, don't be blinded by all the years of promotion of the bygone
