  1. Thanks for the tip on this book. I will be certainly be on the look-out for it. (a warning to my favorite book store)
    And many thanks as well to Ron Miliam, for expaining what has been, to most Americans, the un-understandable. (Note: to many Europiens as well. But, that would be another story. BTW, if Mr. Miliam would happen to be visiting Germany, let me know. Please. -d)

  2. I look forward to getting a copy of Dr. Milam’s book. I won’t be able to attend, but have made arrangements to purchase a signed copy. Perhaps in the future you can make this easier to arrange for book signings?
