This is great, Ron. Thanks a lot.

We will testify at the hearings in Pasadena next Thursday. I will try to go
myself but at a minimum, we will have some people read prepared statement(s)
and submit additional comments, arguments, etc.

The VVSG is truly an abomination.

I look for more input from OVC-discuss list members.

Thanks again.

Alan D.
