If you are then please be assured that you did spell his name correctly although I cannot imagine my Dad terrorising anyone. I am pleased to say that he is alive and

My response
Thanks, Malcolm.

Dear Mr. Clark,
I apologize for inserting myself into your day but I am very touched by your words, situation and attempt to clarify events in your life. I am moved to tears by your struggles with the judicial system, the broadcaster’s, and the individuals in your life.

Lord only knows why it took until now for your post on litigation from January to come up in my aggregator, but I read it and was extremely impressed by its clarity. I rarely see this kind of material presented in this way!
