Dear Yevgeny,

I am not able to read your Journal as often as I would like, and so it was a very happy coincidence that I opened the latest issue. This is just a quick note to say many thanks for the review of my beetle article - today has been a very dull day and you have brightened it up immensely. Very, very funny - I haven't laughed out loud at anything for a long time now. Fantastic stuff; I think I will have the article framed.

By way of pre-warning, for some reason unknown to me, I have three articles in next month's TRIZ Journal (including yet another one on the new Matrix - sorry!). I hope you will find something worthy of your criticism.

Keep up the good work!
