Good evening Carl,
Thank you for responding to my question. The author in question was hacked
to pieces by someone on a forum. The "hacker" was so vicious that it was
hard for me to see from him the error of the interpretation. I often wonder
if when we correct another if it might be more appropriate to do so in a
spirit of meekness and humility rather than to attempt to discredit the life
work of another.
