Why on earth do you think I made a offer on behalf of the Foundation? I 
don't have the authority to do that.  I said that /I/ felt it was a good 
idea, and that I'm sure Danny would be able to arrange anything 
necessary... obviously that would be /if/ the Board agreed.  I don't see 
any reason why they wouldn't - you'll have to ask and find out.

I won't argue particular points of law, because I am not a lawyer or an 
expert in law.  Perhaps a position you should consider taking yourself. 
   I simply repeat what I've been told, and I chose carefully who I 
decide to take clarification from
