FYI Ken, no response or action required, just a dumb transition mistake at
my end. My apologies to the board members of? the Center for Houston's
Future. Best, Vidal

Gene and Jim, incredibly, and just today, I received from my previous law
firm's home office in New York your letter dated January 25, 2000 inviting
me to be one of the 35 participants in the Center for Houston's Future. When
my previous firm closed it's Houston offices at the end of last December,
all mail was collected and forwarded to New York for sorting and
redistribution. The mail from January that should have been sent to me was
apparently sitting in a corner all these months in the New York mail room of
Curtis, Mallet (my previous firm), and was delivered to me yesterday,
including your letter. You can imagine what my reaction was to my previous
firm's management concerning this nine month delay. I am most distressed,
however, to have missed the opportunity to participate in the Center for
Houston's Future's endeavors, which I most certainly would have, and am
somewhat surprised that my failure to respond to such an important effort
never came up in conversation among us?--- we've been around each other
innumerable times since the letter was sent. My apologies to the both of you
and to the Board of Directors of the Center. I care deeply about this city
and region, and would have felt privileged to have participated. My best to
the both of you, Vidal
