Marshall…..Thank you, thank you for this remarkable venture you undertook and for a fantastic report that further exposes the problems with this ridiculous registry. I hope and pray that your efforts and those of so many involved in the RSOL movement will ultimately pay off, by educating the public what this issue is truly about. Their ignorance breed fear. They need to know the truth.
