To Whom It May Concern:

I feel very strongly about having independent directors on the Boards of open-ended Mutual Funds. I am really extremely sick and tired of being "ripped off" by the institutions and their personnell that are supposed to be ethically concerned about my welfare -- whether financial or otherwise.

I hope that somewhere in the SEC, someone "will do the right thing" for someone other than "special interests".
