No, I think you're missing the point. To say I have no tact or respect
for wanting to preserve the work Don poured the final years of his life
into is missing the point. I knew full well the ramifications of calling
so shortly (relatively) after someone's passing. I also know full well
the ramifications of waiting too long. I'm not suggesting we play "What
Would Don Have Wanted?", but what do you think he would've wanted?

You owe me an apology. Publicly, since that is how you decided it should
