I am Bill Robinson, and I am pinch-hitting for Mark La Fratta. Mark did something that caused him to have to go to Gary, I am not sure what it is. Perhaps, Mr. Brown will be able to tell us later on. In any event, it is a pleasure to be here. A couple of Saturdays ago, I was out sailing in an old boat I have, and we had wonderful winds. We were wasting in an area on the Rappahannock that I was not very familiar with, and we were just about to make our last tide in the fifth of six legs of the race, when we ran aground so badly, and so far, that it looked like one of those photographs after a hurricane, with the boat keeled over. Eventually, somebody came by and yelled over from his boat, "It sure is a lot easier standing up at a podium in a courtroom, than what you are doing, is it not, my boy." It was a bailiff in the Federal Judge's Courtroom in Richmond, and the general proposition he used was correct. And, it is with a little trepidation that I come because you all are experts at this, and the panelists are certainly experts, and I am simply going to be introducing them.
