I guess I may be just "preaching to the choir," but I justed wanted to share
with you all just how reputable a company Lee Valley Tools is. As many of
you know, California is having some budget problems, and as usual, this
affects high school vocational programs greatly. In spite of this I have
been trying to expand my wood program to include more "Neanderthal" aspects.
My budget does not allow me the luxury of quality handtools. I wrote to Lee
Valley and explained the situation. Lee Valley asked me what we needed most
and promptly sent us about $500 worth of quality tools at no cost.
Companies can do this only when they make a reasonable profit, thus I ask
each of you to help me say thank you to Mr. Lee by helping his company make
an even better profit. Sacrifice by buying more great tools from him.
Explain to your wives that the new tool you are buying is a "moral
obligation." I'm sure she will understand.
In all seriousness, Mr. Lee, if you are reading this post, thank you from
the bottom of my heart for the generousness (is that a word?) of your
A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to
take everything you have. -Thomas Jefferson
