Can we bring this thread to a close. The emails are now at a level that I don't
see as productive or helping anyone. I hate to bore other people on the site.
I would really like to see the thread continued -- Judging from my emails I am sure there are other list members that are interested in the thread and have questions but are afraid to post for some reason.

He heard this history from not only Judge Lewis Shepherd but also John Netherland
