Security reasons. Wadih is very concerned about his work force. I might
be willing to help you if you give me full credit, but I pitched Deborah
Howell and never heard back from her.
Unfortunately, news reporters contact me all the time, never mention my
name and certainly never return the favor. So I need ground rules.
All the best,

under such tight wraps and that nothing more has been written about it
and just wanted to talk to you a bit about that, your time permitting of
course. mike

which is extremely good. if you have some time, please e-mail me and i
