Ok Bart - not certain why in the world you'd want to dredge all this up -
but since you've apparently decided to do so - your patently false
portrayals are *not* going to go unanswered. It may take a couple of days to
fully respond ... but baby if ya want to fight, okey-dokey. Perhaps you
should understand, however, that

1. To make an accusation is *not* necessarily to "slander". If 9/10's of the
accusations are *ture* trying to point to one and prove it "false" is not a
2. The leadership of *any* democratically elected organization can, and
*should* be looked at very closely. Especially when the organization shows
dramatic declines in membership, and MOST especially when power is extremely
centralized. When one man controls all publications, that man damn well

organization, *WILL BE*. When one small group controls all uses of money,

victims, acted, (as you are still acting) as though some terrible,
slanderous deeds were done against poor suffering selfless workers. The fact
that you've interpreted what in any other organization would be considered
the *normal workings of a healthy, democratic organization* as such only
demonstrates all the more fully what dire straits have been reached. -JRC
