I will do my best to avoid all this.

BTW do you think you can attend to our summit in NC? I would 
really like to see you, your concerns are *very* valid - sponsorizing 
documentation is a huge new step.

The authors already part of the LDP or that have writtent many

We should also discuss going IRS 501 C 3 and starting a new
