There was no interview, there is nothing to cut and paste. On the back of the Christmas card that Mr. Wolfe sent me, he scrawled a few personal words that answered one of my questions. Very disturbing words that I feel it would be a betrayal to share with the online community...so I am going to go back to the books and look for solid evidence to present and see if I can get someone else to come to the same conclusion. Crush weighs in: Hmmm...so what are you going to do? Go back to the books and make your argument based on the text - all the while waving what you claim is a secret communiqué from Wolfe which we are supposed to credibly accept proves your position (rather McCarthyish)? How is anyone supposed to argue with that? How can we even know you have interpreted the information accurately? I'm NOT saying you are lying about your information from Wolfe-I don't believe you are. But surely you realize your decision to share/not share this information did not come from your best motives. It certainly wasn't intended to enlighten anyone on this list. If you did not feel it was right to pass on the information you should have kept its existence to yourself. Having done so, you could still ask Mr. Wolfe for permission to share it, stipulating that you won't do so without his leave. Crush --
