Hi Wayne

To set the record straight. I never said I thought Baresch to be part of a
ficticious backstory. I believe that he was a real person. I also do not
subscribe to the theory that Marci was performing some kind of test on
Kircher. Marci only acquired his own information after Kircher had been
contacted by Baresch. This information, at present only conjecture on my
part, would have given Marci second thoughts as to what to do with the
VMS. This is where I believe he decided to include Kircher. Gans is
critical to understanding this nervousness.
