Sorry am I miising something here - I thought it was because I was a
racist pig - nothing to do wth HPB or theosophy.

Please don't let political correctness stand in the way of tellingit
like it is. If you wanna flame me do so. Just don't dance around issues.
We're all grown ups here (I hope)

Dear Eldon:

Thanks for what you write.

I admit I can get very upset when I read things about 
H.P.Blavatsky or Theosophy that are inaccurate -- hence my open Protest.

And that's where it stops.
