BOB EVANS ON THE FORBES CENTRAL AMERICA ARTICLE

Last week we published a link to a Forbes magazine article about
the investors who backed the recovery of the S.S. Central America
Treasure.  The gist of the article was that the investors hadn't
yet recovered their money.  Bob Evans was a key member of the
project team, and he was interviewed for the article.  He writes:
"I would like to respond to this article, but it is hard to know
where to begin. It is such a slanted piece, and one where I believe
the writers had the conclusions in their minds before they even
began the research. I was interviewed at length, but I notice that
my commentary was completely absent from the article, probably
because I had mostly flattering things to say about our accomplishments,
and about Tommy Thompson: stuff that did not fit their pre-conceived
notions. Such is journalism."
