Chill Out, Bill. ;-)

I'm sending the guy a detailed e-mail with lots of references (some of the same
you supplied) as well as a copy of my prinate white paper on fuzzy set
induction techniques. This is an area that needs lots of explanation and
examples. The number of fuzzy sets, their overlap, and shape (bell-curves,
trapezoids, triangular, S-curves, etc) are based, to a large degree, on the
decision space and the data itself (knowing the kurtosis and skew of the
distribution is an important factor).

Anyway, I've shipped you a copy of the white paper under separate cover. An
expanded part of it will appear in the new book I'm writing on Designing and
Implementing Fuzzy Expert and Decision Support Systems.

Happy New Year.
Earl
