    As I said, Aubrey, with respect to relations with Alcor my views
are not representative of the CI Board, therefore I cannot represent
CI in these matters. And I am against the comparisons
document in the first place -- also not representative of most of
the CI Directors and Advisors -- but no one is going to force me
to produce one.

   Thank you for these comments, Joe. I am sorry if I misunderstood
you and even more sorry if I misrepresented you.
