Subject: SLS: Taxes 101/pi

I submitted a challenge to this cash award,
many years ago, and S-A-P's response was 
nothing short of ridiculous.

They want to be judge and party, all wrapped
up in the same process, just like Bill Conklin's
similar challenge several years ago.

What's wrong with this picture?  If you don't
already know the answer to that question,
you need a lot of help.

So, I regard the $10,000 cash offer to be
bogus, at best.
