If anyone wants to know, I shut down the "plus size model" thread...for now, here's the deal, be happy you are connected to the Internet and I don't have time to read 82 posts on that thread that went bizerk because of egos and underlying reasons.
I just got in late, late, last night from Chicago where we had a killer workshop thanks to Ralph & Ian Haseltine, but I'm also swamped with email requests, PM's, and requests from my publisher and upcoming seminars reps. My brother I think just lost his house at Lake Pontchartrain as he lives in New Orleans and my in-laws in Dekalb, Mississippi are without power and such and my mother-in-law is an insulin diabetic that relies on power to keep her meds cool. My father is getting ready to undergo his "corrective surgery" at the age of 75 for the doctor who screwed him up last year and my wife and kids didn't get to see me for almost five days and I had fun flying home last night through a damaged plane, thunderstorms and all....
In other words, I don't have too much time right now to read 82 posts, emails and all, I have to say hello to my wife and keep my phone line open as I may go help my brother recover stuff in New Orleans before it gets looted...an even shorter answer, I have things to do that involve family, please work your things out with each other and act mature. I wish you all the best, rg sends!
