I sent out an alternate LRSA a few weeks ago to address and thus far
have heard nothing. I also don't have a real problem with the $100.00 (
OK I do but only because I'm cheap. :-) ) I keep hearing that they just
want to update our records but the LRSA goes much further than that.
John Paul Morrison is a separate email offers reasons about why we
should never have to pay and they make some sense but I'm still willing
to cough up the $100.00 or something like it to keep things up to date
