    1.  I'm a speed reader because of my educational background and yet can still pick up any typo.  There's an exception re: speed reading for precious few documents -- statutes, regulations, briefs, case law and well written fiction/non-fiction.

    2.  It took me well over an hour to read your first chapter, which is 33 pages if you copy it to Microsoft Word and give it a 14 pt font type.  -- That has never happened to me before.

    3.  This "diary," which is more appropriately named a first chapter of an invaluable historical book, is astonishing in its depth, detail and accessibility.  

    I read your post as if I were reading a rare and engaging gem of literature.  With your facts and history you lay out the horror of humans' capability for evil.

    Bar none -- your diary is the best I have ever read on this site.  I swear -- get the book together.  If the rest is as well edited as this first chapter, you are well on your way for publication.  The history of evil is never dated.

    I copied and gave to my friend who is a lawyer who deals with radiation and toxicity issues.  He is a devotee of the history of war.  I'll let you know his review but I'm pretty sure it will be beyond positive.

    I may be wrong in my remembrance but just recently someone maligned you in the comments because you spoke of the realities of chemical warfare.  That person should be ashamed.

    Thank you, Lenny -- I think I've disagreed with you before, which is fine -- because it didn't color my perception of this diary.

    Is this comment as long as Chapter One?????
