Comet


Letter, dated June 20th, 1989:

Dear Jimmy,

I received an ad for this and decided to get it for you because I remembered that you wanted to find out about it. It may be more basic physics than you're interested in; I'll be glad to discuss any part of it with you if you have questions.

Best regards,
Kent

Are some of my cultural friends charlatans?

Sometimes I wonder if I am, a charlatan, I mean.
