Dear Arno,

As I said in my first reply to your initial message, I emailed you the final
draft of the manuscript as an MS Word file, along with Le Monde diplomatique
and several other individuals, which included John's Afterword. You
obviously neglected to read it. I have apologised for failing to send you
the printed hard copy of the book, not for failing to send you the final
