      OK, I'll bite. If those people were not quoted nor even mentioned, how would YOU know "nothing" would have been gained? Pray tell.

<< The book shows how the courts were used and misused. There were gross errors on both sides.

      And how was it bad publicity for those dreaded "academians"? And that should read, "commercial collector", by the way. DV
