Hi Ms. Clinton!
Listen, I read Grant's E-mail and it is not unpleasant or unsolicited mail. He
was just politely remarking on your web-sites. It is considered a common
practice in the Internet to visit homepages of people one encounters and then
remark to them about them in private. Nothing wrong's here. It's considered
part of the Internet socializing.
You are making a fuss out of nothing. And as for J. Grant - I don't understand
why he needs to press charges here.
