Subject: Re: Latest encycl draft, Reading 9 added
I am waiting for the car to take me to the airport. Off to Venice and
North Italian Lake Country with friends and in-laws. Back 26 May.
So I can give you only a cursory appreciation of your draft on RBF's
philosophy. Conceptually and strategically the draft has assurance and
integrity. But many nuances are questionable (For instance, I left CIA
when Lyndon Johnson was president: long before Nixon's purges of ivy
leaguers.) You have a sure grasp of what Fuller was trying to do, and
you have sense of the problems of present day philosophy in America. So
the piece is useful, and potentially a good statement to have on the
record. I have saved it. And would appreciate further opportunity to
gloss it in detail on my return.
Thanks for infoing me on so many of your posts. I appreciate that.

Synergetics-l through crosslink.)
