Really? How many times has Richard talked about these things compared to
you and I and Tad and everyone else? Will *YOU* agree to drop the issue
as well? If not, why not?

(I'm not really trying to pick a fight here, but you and Tad seem intent
on making Richard into a strawman and I know he's content to let you do
it. Then he'll sit back, smoking his cigar, and laugh at you for all the
time you've wasted on his behalf. Can't you see that when he pulls a
string you two dance?!? (And he doesn't even need to pull very hard!) /He/
has become your little "four principals" here! Has talking about it/him
here done anything more than spread the myth?)
