I put an ample disclaimer on the article in question, Phillip. I
think you deleted it just to make a point. Anyway, all of the above
was taken straight from Morgan's books and other literature where the
topic was discussed in much more detail than this. But you are right,
it _is_ speculation. I SAID that in a paragraph immediately before
the quoted one.
