        Don, I'm really *SORRY* things turn out for you the way they
did!.. I know how distressing (and PAINFUL) it is to reach out to
someone that you have admired for years and they turn out to be
hateful or arrogant as well as conceited and not at all
respectable!!  I am only thankful that when I contacted YOU several
years ago, that you were very open and friendly towards me and just
down-right pleasant to talk to (and for that I *THANK* you!)!!!!!! 
At least, as far as you are concerned, your fans can admire both
for your work and you as a human being!

That's about all for now,

Gil (what's-his-face)

sent out today, *PLEASE* let me know!!
