for shame trying to peddle a book so you can get even with people you disagree with. that's not very professional, carolyn.

for the record, your facts are wrong in just about every instance. i have passed on your samples to my attorney. i have been instructed to wait for the publication of your book and, if necessary, i have been assured that we will take the appropriate action at that time.
