    Already tried. Without BK's permission, it isn't available to the public. LP's claim is incorrect. The Copyright Office won't even tell me how many pages it is.

    Lasers - Applying a Blow Torch

    Personally, I feel betrayed by the ILCA. The vote was either intentionally and deliberately misleading (fraudulent misrepresentation at worst - negligent misrepresentation at best) or their "attorney" committed malpractice in telling them the patents had expired. Which was it? The ILCA lied to...

    Lasers - Applying a Blow Torch

    Your summary is so simple and I totally agree. I wonder if your opinion is shared with those at your club, being mindful that you have an ILCA officer at your club. Has this created conflict? I wonder if the opinions of Laser sailors at clubs with ILCA officers differs from others.

    http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php/Nader_Rastegar Yep. Iran seized their operations in Iran in the 70s but look at how how the operations ranked in size in the world. Even dictators move the bulk of their wealth out of their country. Do you really think they kept that kind of money in a...

    . Family money. He comes from the wealthiest mining family in Iran. His businesses are disposable toys or, more likely, tools for moving money around the world.

    Lasers - Applying a Blow Torch

    Rastegar is most likely in the billionaire's club. This is fun and games to him. No doubt he's already positioned LP for bankruptcy. Don't think for a minute that he's feeling financial pressure.

    But one party stopped brushing his teeth for over a year and then gingivitis set in and there was talk of a tooth extraction, root canal, counterfet teeth (dentures). It's just a royal mess.
