All of this would be of
great concern to me if I knew that this was true. I
really do think, that I should call Ken Dandar and ask him if what you say
here is truly the case.
There have been so many
wild allegations thrown around a.r.s in recent
times about various people and situations. Many of these allegations could
have been cleared up with one phone call. In fairness to the newsgroup, I
will go to the effort of verifying your remarks by going to Mr. Dandar, who
would certainly know the truth of the matter, since he was there.
If it's true that I am
the reason that Caroline decided not to be a witness
for a case that I care so much about, I will apologize to you and Caroline.
But if I find out that your allegations are not true after I talk to Ken
Dandar, will you apologize to me for not telling the truth about my alleged
involvement with Caroline being a witness to the case?
