Daniel, Tillett & Puppets

Since you want to quote Tillett, please remember he wrote your "Algeo Committee" is a group of puppets who misused Cooper's work.  This is not my opinion --  it is his.  

You wrote to Tillett in April 2006 about that.  See below and remember it before trying to using Tillett to justify Algeo and yourself.  

Best regards,   Carlos.
