On another board, de novo Williams advocate Mike Epstein has been responding to posts, calling some posters by name, generally getting to know folks, just gabbing and contributing. Now, a lot of his contributions are anecedotes and terms burgled from Steve Ferroli, but forget that for now.

> My agenda is honesty and credibility and nothing more. Why lie about this? People who lie in their professions are suspect in my opinion. Who is he trying to impress. Forget my agenda. Ask Mike what is his agenda in making up stories about himself that place him in the company of well-known authorities, when it appears highly doubtful that he in fact was.
Hello again...late correction
Harry died in 1951 in Detroit; Mike, who was born in the Bronx, was 8, not 9.
