Hi Sanders,

Yikes! My ego is starting to get on my nerves (as Yogi Berra might have said). I co-wrote that darned book (for BIG bucks ... and food stamps!) óbeing responsible for quite a bit of the technical informationó and I'm getting a little tired of seeing only Roger's name associated with it! Obviously, Roger isn't necessarily obliged to mention my name each and every time someone compliments him on the book, but I have no problem unshamefully doing it myself. From time-to-time. As well, I'd like to add my "thank you" for your kind comments!
