This makes me SICK! Franco, YOU ARE A LIAR!!!! I am just back from my
4th trip to Morocco. Let me tell everyone on this list the truth. THESE
FRENCH ARE ALL buying meteorites in Morocco. I have been there enough to
see what is happening. THEY ARE ALL lying to us. They have been for
years. How do you think that this large market has formed over there.
Bruno Fectay is now angry that I just bought an incredible oriented
bullet shaped one kilo achondrite. He has been trying to get us in
trouble in Morocco since almost two weeks ago when he found out we were
there. They are pissed off at the perceived intrusion into "their"
territory. Franco wont leave well enough alone. We are not the ones
lying through our teeth. I have yet to find a meteorite in Morocco.
Someday maybe, but not yet, nor have I said I have found any. All of the
others though seem to only find their meteorites. WHAT CRAP!!!!!
I have been told by EVERYONE there that ALL of the FRENCH dealers BUY
meteorites there, Bruno and Carine Fectay, Marc, Luc, and Jim Labenne,
Franco, and all others have bought and sold meteorites from the sellers
there, most tell the truth about where they got them, some do not.
    Franco, stop with this " holier than though %##$ ^E$%$# and back
off" It is getting old. The French started the whole Morocco fiasco,
the Americans and Canadians are simply branching out there. So go whine
to your countrymen about the mess that they started.
I warn any people that want to go to Morocco that certain French people
are now trying to cause problems with customs for any Americans that go
for meteorites to Morocco.
This is starting to piss me off just a tad Bruno, watch out or the
problems can be started here in Tucson too. This is my turf, if you
want to get me in trouble in Africa, I assure you that I can play the
same game here.

PS, I had the priveledge of watching the full Lunar eclipse from the
Sahara Desert, I didnt even know that it was coming, but it sure was awe
inspiring. Holding meteorites and looking up as the moon grew red and
dark, the stars brightened, the wind blew....... Wonderful.

Have a nice day!
