To Whom It May Concern,
      
      I am writing this note in regards to your impending actions on PPA. A
few questions is all I have for you today.
      1. Which isomer are you referring to, d-, l-, or dl- ?
      2. How many deaths have actually been attributed to PPA in the last 30
years?
            If my information is correct i believe there were 14 cases of
"strokes" linked
            to it. Now how many deaths were attributed to aspirin last year?
How about
            in 1998?
      3. Just how far did Knoll etc. have to go to get you do pull this
brazen a stunt on
           a product villified by a flawed study?
      4. Back to the study, if those are your criteria then we are back at
aspirin,
            tylenol anyone?
      I apologize for the sarcasm, but it is just too hard to take you guys
seriously when you keep pulling stunts like this. I eagerly await Round 4 of
the ephedrine removal struggle. Here is a tip, try doing things for the good
of the people that you are supposed to serve and not so much for the people
who keep buying you nice things, one of these days they won't leave you a
c-note on the nightstand when they leave in the morning. Thanks for your
time, hope I didn't keep you from anything important.

One Love,
