	In this particular case, you got me. In the general case,
 though, I still think my arguments have merit.

	I would leave it to the members to decide whether this should
 affect the recommendations we make in this case.  I would like to
 point out, though, that recommendations of this committee are taken
 to set a precedence, and perhaps we should be thinking in gernal
 terms when we make the recommendations.
