E. Lynch, M.D:I can see that you are all
ready to jump in. Just a couple of quick things first. I had hoped that
I could hold up this sign, and in Barney Frankís inimitable manner read
the statement that he has sent to us, but unfortunately it will be impossible
for me to imitate Barney Frank. He is in fact, inimitable, but I will
read you the statement:
Dear friends, To tell
the truth, I am sometimes not entirely displeased when a change in the
legislative schedule prevents me from attending an event out of town which
I had agreed to months before. I find that my enthusiasm for participation
in some speeches, panels, etc., diminishes as the time for actually delivering
the remarks approaches, but in this case, I am deeply regretful that I
cannot be with you and not simply because of the troubling nature of the
issue which keeps me in Washington this morning, impeachment.
