Email from unsolicited sources is sooooo easily ignored.  Paper
letters work better.  Feel free to argue and disagree with this
as well; I won't say anything more on the topic other than to
say this is truth.  You'll say it's not, and that's the end of

We differ on strategy, so there you go.  I'm not likely to change
my strategy especially on the word of someone lacking experience and
ability; likewise, I suspect you'll blow off what I wrote since it
doesn't fit with your brand of frontier justice.

That's okay.  I know most of the people reading what I write don't
like hearing what I have to say. :)  I can still sleep at night.

Let's agree to disagree.  I'm right, you're wrong, except you have
it backwards, and there we go!  Good afternoon.
