Re: [Groop]Nate's news...

Hi Nate!

Wow and Double WOW!!!!!  You've got more than your foot in the door, you've
got your whole leg!!!  You are not in a totally dissimilar situation from
where Stan Sakai was about 16 or 17 years ago.  Sergio was his main mentor
and it sounds like you've got Mike Alred!!!  Too Coooool!!!

Don't let the legal problems get you down.  They will go away.  Your talent
and perseverance will not.

Take care -Gary G.

PS  When you are famous we will all show up at conventions you attend and
embarass the hell out of you!

PPS  This will be almost as entertaining as Squirrel dressing up like
Umberto and being there as your self-appointed body guard.
