Dear Mr. James,

Sincerely,

Steven,
I answered a very similar set of questions for another Asian chat board many months ago. I suggest you see that site for my answers. Beyond that, I think my postings during this week address many of the issues your questionaire poses in far more depth than your list invites. I won't address the remaining questions when posed en mass. I appreciate your curiosity but don't feel much useful information would be generated by filling in your list.

I hope that you will understand my intention is to let other magic hobbylist in my local community have better vision to the world of magic.

Once again, thank you for your reply.

Ambitious,
I was not offended, I simply don't see a practical way to answer your series of questions in a way that would provide meaningful information without writing a book. In case you haven't noticed, I'm not real good at short answers.

My previous effort at answering a similar set of questions persuaded me of the conclusion I stated above. Those answers are not on my web site but you are welcome to check:

http://groups.msn.com/cardmagic/interviews.msnw

I believe that site is owned by Zenneth Kok.

I have no problem with your intentions and would be happy to comply if I thought I could do your request justice in this forum. I am not so convinced and, therefore, responded as I did.

Peace,

Wesley James
