    Missile Defense

Technology has always found its greatest consumer in a nation's war and defense efforts. Since the last attempts at a "Star Wars" defense system, has technology changed considerably enough to make the latest Missile Defense initiatives more successful? Can such an application of science be successful? Is a militarized space inevitable, necessary or impossible?

I just walked into the office of a man I know, well versed in the markets, in accounting, and in the virtues of honest analysis. Unannounced. An old A.E.A. investor. Got to see his secretary. Got his card, and will be sending him an email, phoning him, and asking for a few minutes of his time.

Just one shot among a number.

I believe that, if only I could get something like MD2641 rshow55 6/20/02 1:00pm cleanly discussed -- which would require that some AEA investors meet with me face to face - a lot could be sorted out.

Because of the grammar of the situation, somebody with some stature will have to help me out by making a phone call - shifting an essentially automatic "no" to a "yes" .

I'm pleased to see that the market has turned a bit today. Perhaps it ought to. Seems to me that things are getting better and more hopeful, rather than worse.
