Truly, we all want to know the truth (or at least as much of it as we 
can stand).  Unfortunately, in American and Canadian commerce, truth is 
in short supply.  Anyone with a pension fund with equity investment has 
probably got this figured out.  Consequently, it is useful to know the 
commercial affiliation of those who make statements about the products 
we are interested in.  i.e. it's not so much what a person says that is 
interesting, it's trying to figure out why he says it.

So, Pete, thanks for pointing out Dan's possible commercial interest in 
alleging a Trylon deficiency.  

Dan, I have been asked by the emergency communications group of Canada's 
3rd largest city to spec a tower for the city E-Comm centre.  Trylon is 
on my short list.  You have given me something to check out that would 
not otherwise have occurred to me.

So, everyone, is Dan right in what I take to be his assertion that the 
edges of all Trylon tower elements are not adequately protected from 
corrosion?  "Sleepless specifiers want to know", or, "I don't want to be 
known as the guy that recommended something that rusted out before he 
was dead."

I'm going to bed now, mindful of what Neill Young taught me in his song, 
"Rust Never Sleeps".
