Well, let's preserve the old school tie. Another defense from Boys Town. This 
Gorga must have a lot of people there afraid of him. 
Your depiction, by the way, of what is professional is a childish attempt to 
deflect folks from the paucity of any specific objections to my 
characterisation of Dr. Gorga's message, which I deemed unprofessional It 
appeared to me to be such a trivial letter from such an intelligent and 
accomplished fellow. I was commenting on its style, not its substance. I don't 
expect the man to endorse products, a la Jerry Northern, but, for Heaven's 
sake, don't brag about how wonderful you are in not doing so.  Just seemed to 
me to be self serving, but then, who am I?

And yes, I've never heard of you. Must be a great shock to your  ego.
