<P>Perhaps the french should keep in mind that if it wasn't for the AMERICANS, they would all be speaking German at this time.</P>
<P>Of course this is just my personal opinion.</P>

<DIV></DIV>&gt;Yes, finally someone else with the cajones to stake what he thinks.
<DIV></DIV>&gt;It is funny that most of these problems come from those who missed out
<DIV></DIV>&gt;on the rare items. Our new Lunar, NWA 482 has caused a firestorm of
<DIV></DIV>&gt;controversy, but only from the other "French" buyers who missed it. I
<DIV></DIV>&gt;have had numerous emails, conversations, phone calls, threats etc. from
<DIV></DIV>&gt;several FRENCH buyers, but not from ANY other sources, NO Germans have
<DIV></DIV>&gt;harassed me, no Italians, no Russians, no one from Czech Republic etc.
<DIV></DIV>&gt;Only from several French people who seem to feel that North Africa is
<DIV></DIV>&gt;their domain for some unknown reason!
<DIV></DIV>&gt;It seem that the basic idea that they are trying to spread is that their
<DIV></DIV>&gt;meteorites are good, everyone else' s are BAD! "Don't buy Brunos SNC
<DIV></DIV>&gt;Paris,. it is BAD, Don't buy Farmer and Stropes new Lunar, it is BAD, My
<DIV></DIV>&gt;stuff is GOOD, buy MINE!"
<DIV></DIV>&gt; Does anyone else find this to be a little annoying and amusing at
<DIV></DIV>&gt;the same time?
<DIV></DIV>&gt;It seems that someone is sending notices to museums that NWA 482 is not
<DIV></DIV>&gt;a good Lunar to get, I wonder who that might be???????
<DIV></DIV>&gt; Science is profiting more then ever right now with the rare items
<DIV></DIV>&gt;being discovered. The finders are profiting too, is that wrong? It takes
<DIV></DIV>&gt;alot of money to fund these expeditions. Without that money, the
<DIV></DIV>&gt;meteorites will lay forever in the sand, and the information that they
<DIV></DIV>&gt;give will be lost.
