You and I both know that the overwhelmingly majority of the research, words, and conclusions in the article that "you" wrote belong to Ron Smith. Why in the world would you attach your name to Ron Smith's "research"?
Is it because you are a business man and the owner of a paint company that sells Naval paints to modelers and you're trying to spark interest in all the different colors of the ships at Pearl so that you can make a few extra bucks?
Is Ron Smith is the man behind the curtain, the master of puppets? Did he get you like he got Don Preul?
How much did Ron charge you for the rights to his research and allowing you to write this article? Was it worth it? I have a feeling that you will regret attaching your name to Ron's research in the future.
See ya in 2031 when you return to the board. Hopefully your paint business is still in business at that time.
