Hey, Bret, that is big of you.

And, I agree, I can't know where you are on the right-left spectrum.
I hope you know the message anyway wasn't about you personally; it
is an allegation that let us say I have run into quite a bit.

Gee, if we go on like this maybe you and I both will end up with
another friend.

And do read *Modernity and the Millennium*. It is in an inexpensive
paperback from; I'm told it is readable for a book by a professor; and it tries to make an argument as to why Baha'u'llah's thought is important for us moderns. Despite what has been whispered, its covers are not coated with a strange Baha'i substance that converts people to its point of view. :-)

cheers Juan
