Dear Eliezer,

As it happened, I had a conversation with Marvin walking down the hall after
we left the room. I am not going to speak for him, but I can say that I got
the clear understanding that he just wanted to move on to the next question,
no sparks, no fight. I make no value judgements about the personal behavior
on either/any side. Others may be disappointed, but there is just no juice
