In spite of how my comments may come across, I'm very glad that you folks
are doing well.  There are a lot of good people at Cygnus who have put in a
lot of good work, and I think they deserve the rewards.

Stan has suggested gently that Cygnus may be in a pre-IPO phase.  If so,
there are severe limits on what they can say in response to my comments
While talking about *past* performance is okay legally, it's probably unwise
for them to do so if they are in that mode.

The reason I mention it is to point out that Cygnus keeping quiet is not the
same as Cygnus not having a good response.
