If I was practicing optometry in Brooklyn, N.Y., I would have taken "Paper Planes" (September) as an explosive first-chapter preview of an upcoming business-mystery novel. However, because I practice commercial litigation and criminal law near Flying Cloud -- and have known William Rubin since our days in North Minneapolis -- the issues of the FTC litigation have attracted my interest.

Your expose was the first piece that truly permits the untrained eye a view of the "Taj Mahal."
