    I am referred to in the book as a wacky engineer (in fact I was/am a stable chemical engineer), and was one of the original half-dozen engineers (from Sun Oil Marcus Hook) that was assigned to the original pilot plant operation [early 1960’s]. A great experience, and we made a lot of tailings in those days. Looks like you are getting ahead of the disposal problem.
    I am 72, long retired now, and I get a lot of pleasure owning a few shares. So I get your great newspaper!
    Best of luck,
    Jim Graybill

      Hi James:

      Thanks for the comment. Glad you enjoy our little magazine. You must be amazed at how much the oil sands has grown since you were working on it.
