        Glad you posted the message. I do not know how many are aware of
Brant Jackson's unsigned memo was circulated by the National President of
TSA to all the Lodges and Study Centers, with a cover letter in effect
endorsing Brant Jackson's letter.

In the circustances, both the National President and Brant Jackson
need to apologize in public and send copies to everyone to whom the cover
letter and Jackson's letters were sent.

If on the other hand they have facts support that the tax exempt assets
were converted to private benefit, they need to file a complaint with
Internal Revenue Service in public who will take action on the
individuals involved.
