Editor’s Note: About a year agao, Evelyn and I flew as guests on board a B-17, taking off from Ramona’s Airfield and landing in Long Beach.
En route, we explored the plane and learned just how cramped and utilitarian this aircraft was. Our flight was, maybe, 45 minutes. One can only imagine what it must have been like stuck in a cramped airplane like this for hour after hour . . . particularly when being shot at . . . and hit.

This is a story that brings home what it was like back in the day .... The Screwed Up Pilot
First, let’s get this out of the way. Jay Zeamer wasn’t a photographer by trade. He was mostly a wanna-be pilot. He looked good on paper, having graduated with a degree in civil engineering from MIT, joining the Army Air Corps, and receiving his wings in March 1941. He was a B-26 bomber co-pilot when World War II started. His classmates all rapidly became lead pilots and squadron leaders, but not Jay. He couldn’t pass the pilot check tests despite trying numerous times. He was a good pilot, but just couldn’t seem to land the B-26. Landing, from what I’ve read, was considered one of the more important qualifications for a pilot. Stuck as a co-pilot while his classmates and then those from the classes behind him were promoted, he got bored and lost all motivation. Things came to a head when co-pilot Zeamer fell asleep while his plane was in flight. Not just in flight, but in flight through heavy anti-aircraft fire during a bombing run. He only woke when the pilot beat him on the chest because he needed help. His squadron commander had him transferred to a B-17 squadron in Port Moresby, New Guinea, where he was allowed to fly as a fill-in navigator and occasionally as a co-pilot. He was well liked and popular — on the ground. But no one wanted The Paper - 760.747.7119

to fly with him.
Zeamer finally managed to get into the pilot’s seat by volunteering for a photo reconnaissance mission when the scheduled pilot became ill. The mission, an extremely dangerous one over the Japanese stronghold at Rabual, won Zeamer a

managed to fly as a B-17 fill-in pilot fairly often. He had discovered that he loved to fly B17s on photo reconnaissance missions, and he wanted to do it full-time. There were only three things standing in his way: he didn’t have a crew, he didn’t have an airplane, and oh, yeah, he still wasn’t a qual-

ified pilot. He solved the first problem by gravitating to every misfit and ne’er-do-well in the 43rd Air Group. As another pilot, Walt Krell, recalled, “He recruited a crew of renegades and screwoffs. They were the worst — men nobody else wanted. But they gravitated toward one another and made a hell of a team.”
The plane came later. An old, beat-up B-17, serial number 41-2666, that had seen better days was flown into their field to be scavenged for spare parts. Captain Zeamer had other ideas. He and his crew decided to rebuild the plane in their spare time since they weren’t going to get to fly any other way. Exactly how they managed to accomplish their task is the subject of some debate. Remember, there were so few spare parts available that their ‘plane’ was actually brought in originally to be a parts donor. But rebuild it they did. Once it was in flying shape the base commander congratulated them and said he’d find a new crew to fly it. Not surprisingly, Zeamer and his crew took exception to this idea, and according Walt Krell the crew

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
The laziest man I ever met put popcorn in his pancakes so they would turn over by themselves. ••••• The phone rang at the firehouse just five minutes after the men had all retired for their afternoon nap. "It's a terrible blaze at my house," the voice frantically cried. "The flames are licking through the basement and the first floor. Pretty soon they'll ravage the entire place." "Did you try throwing water over it?" asked the fire chief. "Yes!"
"Then there's no use our coming over. That's all we do."
slept in their airplane, having loudly announced that the 50 caliber machine guns were kept loaded in case anyone came around to ‘borrow’ it. There was a severe shortage of planes, so the base commander ignored the mutiny and let the crew fly – but generally expected them to take on missions that no one else wanted. The misfit crew thrived on it. They hung around the base operations center, volunteering for every mission no one else wanted. That earned the nickname The Eager Beavers, and their patched up B-17 was called Old 666.
Once they started flying their plane on difficult photo reconnaissance missions, they made some modifications. Even among the men of a combat air station, the Eager Beavers became known as gun nuts. They replaced all of the light 30 caliber machine guns in the plane with heavier 50 caliber weapons. Then the 50 caliber machine guns were replaced with double 50 caliber guns. Zeamer had another pair of machine guns mounted to the front of the plane so he could remotely fire them like a fighter pilot. And the crew kept extra machine guns stored in the plane, just in case one of their other guns jammed or malfunctioned. A boy of three and a girl of four, were playing house one day. They said that they were man and wife, and they were going away. As they knocked upon a neighbor's door, the little girl bowed low saying, "This is my husband and I'm his wife. We're visiting you, you know.”
"Come in, come in," the lady at the door said, "and take yourself a seat. I'll bring you both some lemonade and something good to eat."
She gave them each a tall glass and a cookie on a plate. Later, she offered them a second cup of frosty lemonade.
"Oh no, thank you," the wee lass said, as she took the small boy's hand, "We really have to go now. My husband wet his pants." ••••• The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four Americans is suffering from some form of mental illness.

As odd as all this sounds, the South Pacific theatre in the early days of World War II was a chaotic area scattered over thousands of miles with very little equipment.

They asked for a volunteer crew to take photographs of Bougainville Island to plan for an eventual invasion, and of Buka airfield on the north side of the island to assess for increased activity there.

Not to mention photoreconnaiss a n c e m e a n t staying in level flight and taking no evasive action even if they w e r e attacked. The only crew that v o l u n teered, of course, was Jay Zeamer and the Eager Beavers. One of the crew, bombardier Joseph Sarnovski, had absolutely no reason to volunteer. He’d

already been in combat for 18 months and was scheduled to go home in 3 days. Being a photo mission, there was no need for a bombardier. But if his friends were going, he wanted to go, and one of the bombardier’s battle stations was to man the forward machine guns. They might need him, so he went.
They suspected the airstrip at Buka had been expanded and reinforced, but weren’t sure until they got close. As soon as the airfield came in sight, they saw numerous fighters taking off and heading their way. The logical thing to do would have been to turn right and head for home. They would be able to tell the intelligence officers about the increased number of planes at Buka even if they didn’t get photos.
But Zeamer and photographer William Kendrick knew that photos would be invaluable for subsequent planes attacking the base, and for Marines who were planning to invade the island later. Zeamer held the plane level (tilting the wings even one degree at that altitude could put the photograph half a mile off target) and Kendrick took his photos, which gave plenty of time for over 20 enemy fighters to get up to the altitude at which Old 666 was flying. The fighter group, commanded by Chief Petty Officer Yoshio Ooki, was experienced and professional. They carefully set up their attack, forming a semicircle all around the B-17 and then attacking from all directions at once. Ooki didn’t know about the extra weapons the Eager Beavers had mounted to their plane, but it wouldn’t matter if he had; there was no way for a single B-17 to survive those odds. During the first fighter pass the plane was hit by hundreds of machine gun bullets and cannon shells. Five crewman of the B-17 were wounded and the plane badly damaged. All of the wounded men stayed at their stations and were still firing when the fighters came in for a second pass, which caused just as much damange as the first. Hydraulic cables were cut, holes the size of footballs appeared in the wings, and the front plexiglas canopy of the plane was shattered.
Zeamer was wounded during the second fighter pass, but kept the plane flying level and took no evasive action until Kendrick called over the intercom that the photography was completed. Only then did he begin to move the plane from side-to-side allowing his gunners better shots, just as the

catwalk beneath the cockpit. Another crewman reached him and saw there was a huge wound in his side. Despite his obviously mortal wound, Sarnoski said, “Don’t worry about me, I’m all right” and crawled back to his gun which was now exposed to 300 mile an hour winds since the plexiglass front of the plane was now gone. He shot down one more fighter before he died a minute or two later. The battle continued for over 40 minutes. The Eager Beavers shot down several fighters and badly damaged several others. The B-17 was so heavily damaged, however, that they didn’t expect to make the several hundred miles long flight back home. Sarnoski had already died from his wounds. Zeamer had continued piloting the plane despite multiple wounds. Five other men were seriously wounded.

I enjoyed reading your coverage of radio station KOWN. Perhaps I can make a contribution. I had some experience in radio/tv in Chicago and northern Illinois, however I found industry paid better and I did not have to contend with the station politics. So I entered into electronic research and development and my employer transferred me to Escondido.
When I moved to Escondido I found a house close to the KOWN station and visited on a regular basis. I also held a FCC broadcast license, so I sat in with Jay Raymond on occasion and met the station owner, Mrs. Owen or Owens. Thus the call letters OWN. As I recall it was a 250 watt station going on air in 1957 and served only the valley because of the low wattage and low tower. Later the tower was moved to the ridge close to present location of the hospital. That was the beginning of station growth and sale. The studio was moved to the mall and the tower moved again to the ridge north of Escondido. The rest of the history was published in The Paper.

Exploding a Destructive Device
On Saturday, November 16th, at 9:54 P.M., the City of Carlsbad Police Department received a call of an object being tossed from a vehicle, then exploding and making a loud noise. Officers responded to the 6700 block of Camphor Place and discovered an opened plastic bottle in the street with an unknown liquid coming from it. It was later determined that the plastic bottle was a destructive device. No one was injured as a result of the incident and no property was damaged. The Carlsbad Fire Department and the San Diego County HazMat responded to the scene to handle the liquid coming from the bottle.
The only suspect description was possibly a white SUV fleeing from the area southbound Camphor Place towards Camino De Las Ondas just after the explosion.

A Moment of Silence: Is there a more silly tradition in America than “A Moment of Silence?” Makes no sense to me.
Whenever someone suggests “A Moment of Silence,” (usually for someone who has passed on to the Great Perhaps) I find myself wondering . . . “whoa! How long is this here Moment of Silence to last? 30 Seconds? A Minute? 90 Seconds? And who determines when the Moment of Silence is over? What if I’m right in the middle of my Moment of Silence when the whole adventure ends? Do I raise my hand and say ‘excuse me, Mr. Leader Person, but I wasn’t quite finished with my Moment of Silence . . . and I
I declare here and now that when (not if, for it is predetermined) I ascend those stairs into the Great Perhaps, that I positively forbid anyone to call for a Moment of Silence in recognition of my departure. No, instead I shall ask that those assembled take a one week hiatus, do some research, and come back one week later with a “snapper.” A snapper being defined as a 30-60-90second joke. Each member, then assembled, shall recite his or her snapper. When all assembled have been heard then the Leader may say, “That’s the way The Man About Town would have wanted it.” And he’d be right. I’d prefer folks to have a good laugh when I’m gone, not looking down in the mouth. Be it known that whomsoever dares to invoke a call for a “Moment of Silence,” shall be cursed with an invasion by me, or my spirit, and be haunted for the rest of their natural life. ••••• Was batching it this weekend as Evelyn was attending a Kiwanis Foundation meeting up in Santa Barbara (roughing it!).

for the wounded and was needed in the back of the plane. One of the gunners, Sergeant Able, had liked to sit in the cockpit behind the pilots and watch them fly. That made him the most qualified of the crewman, so he flew the plane with Zeamer advising him from the floor while Britton cared for the wounded.
The plane made it back to base. (Britton did return to the cockpit for the landing.) After the landing, the medical triage team had Zeamer removed from the plane last, because they considered his wounds mortal. Amazingly, the one thing on the plane not damaged were the cameras. The photos in them were considered invaluable in planning the invasion of Bougainville. Epilogue
All of the wounded men recovered, although it was a close thing for Captain Zeamer. In fact, a death notification was sent to his parents somewhat prematurely.

The other members of the crew were awarded the Distinguished Service Cross, second only to the Medal of Honor as an award for bravery. So, somewhat surprisingly, the most decorated combat flight in U. S. history didn’t take place in a major battle. It was a photo-reconnaissance flight; the flight of ‘old 666′ in June of 1943.

My eyesight is not as good as it used to be for night driving. I found-out one can buy stronger bulbs for your headlights. I bought Sylvania bulbs, had them installed all for $100. A small price to pay to see better at night while driving.
The amazing part, I can actually see the whole street or lane I'm driving on. I couldn't before. So if night driving gives you hesitation, consider having stronger bulbs installed. William Hart Carlsbad, CA

I had a copy of Aero Space magazine I planned to read at lunch as my hearing is so poor I dodge luncheon conversations.

In 1943 a general call went out to all army personnel, if they wanted to fly, apply so and so. Bob signed up was accepted and trained in the states till the end of the WWII.

The one Battle For Survival That Saved The Free World
Arguably, the “Battle of Britain,” which took place in the summer and fall of 1940, saved the free world from Nazi tyranny.
After Adolf Hitler’s lighting success in capturing most of Western Europe using the German army’s “Blitzkreig” (lighting warfare) tactics, only Great Britain remained to be harnessed in the Nazi yolk of dictatorship. But all that stood in the way of German domination of England, Scotland, and Wales was the English Channel and the world’s most powerful flotilla: Britain’s Royal Navy.

At that time, German Luftwaffe (air force) was the most powerful in the world with more than 2,500 fighters and bombers; Britain’s Royal Air Force numbered less than 800 fighters and bombers. Probably around 600 usable aircraft was a more realistic number. Hitler decided that bombing British airfields and demolishing the RAF would be a prelude to a Channel crossing and land invasion from the French coast some 25 miles away. Luftwaffe leader and Hitler’s No. 2, Herrman Goering, underestimated the tenacity of the British people’s will to resist and the bravado of RAF pilots. In order to equalize the numbers, British pilots would have to shoot down invading German planes on a four-toone ratio.
Hitler was confidant his bombers could overwhelm the British with brute force, knocking out coastal defenses and shipping, eventually giving the Germans air control over the whole of southern England. When the initial mission failed to destroy the RAF, Hitler launched a night-time bombing

Dental Insurance Coverage Alert!
Last September in our article "Health Care Reform in California: What it May Mean to You!" we warned our community that the Affordable Care Act (ACA=Obamacare) only offered children's coverage, that adult dental care benefits are "supplemental" and the exchange does not have to offer them. The California Dental Association, along with the American Dental Association and the Academy of General Dentistry have all been active in encouraging the Board to include the adult population in their coverage. After all, the purpose of this act was to include all our citizens in provid-
That was then but this is now! Regardless of the difficulties our government is having with signing on applicants at their website, the true nature of this (UN)Affordable Care Act is evident. As we write, millions of insured have already lost their insurance coverage, with millions more to follow when 2014 arrives. In order to secure new coverage these families will have to pay much higher premiums... if they can get coverage at all! In addition Insurance Companies are dropping doctors and dentists from their provider lists. Hospitals are laying off doctors, nurses, x-ray and bio-technicians and engineers in order to shave operating costs. Who or where do you go to when your doctor or dentist is no longer a provider for your coverage...if you still have it? The (UN)Affordable Care Act forces Americans to buy - not guaranteed healthcare, but promises for healthcare, which strapped insurance companies and the government will not be able to fulfill. Many employers will opt out of providing insur-
ance for their employees and just pay the lesser penalty. Employees must then apply for their own coverage or apply for the government programs, both at very high rates. Delta Dental, one of the largest insurance providers for dental care in California, is already losing providers for their customers, because of reimbursement cuts to begin in 2014!
No one knows the final outcome of this Act, but it does appear that the age of dental insurance coverage as we've known it, is coming to an end. To this date adult dental coverage is still absent from coverage under the ACA and with insurance premiums going through the roof... it could spell the end of dental coverage for many.

"He was told that the shells had been sent to the armorers to be defused. The armorers told him that Intelligence had picked them up. They could not say why at the time, but Bohn eventually sought out the answer.
"Apparently when the armorers opened each of those shells, they found no explosive charge. They were as clean as a whistle and just as harmless. Empty? Not all of them! One contained a carefully rolled piece of paper. On it was a scrawl in Czech.
The Intelligence people scoured our base for a man who could read Czech. Eventually they found one to decipher the note. It set us marveling. Translated, the note read:

He tells this story of a World War II bombing run over Kassel, Germany, and the unexpected result of a direct hit on their gas tanks.
"Our B-17, the Tondelayo, was barraged by flak from Nazi antiaircraft guns. That was not unusual, but on this particular occasion our gas tanks were hit. Later, as I reflected on the miracle of a 20 millimeter shell piercing the fuel tank without touching off an explosion, our pilot, Bohn Fawkes, told me it was not quite that simple.
"On the morning following the raid, Bohn had gone down to ask our crew chief for that shell as a souvenir of unbelievable luck. The crew chief told Bohn that not just one shell but 11 had been found in the gas tanks. 11 unexploded shells where only one was sufficient to blast us out of the sky. It was as if the sea had been parted for us. A near-miracle, I thought. Even after 35 years, so awesome an event leaves me shak-

campaign, or as the British called it, “Blitz,” of London. So confident Goering was of his air force’s superiority, he bragged to Hitler that if any British bombs ever fell on Berlin, he mockingly told the Nazi leader that he could call the rotund air marshall, “Meyer,” (a Jewish name considered by the Nazis to be a supreme insult). When the first RAF bombs rained down on Berlin, no one knows what Hitler said to Goering, but it’s a good bet it wasn’t pleasant.
Hitler under estimated the stamina of the British people and the skill of RAF pilots and their aircraft. While the Me-109 fighter was a fast and agile aircraft, the RAF “Spitfire” was a superior weapon.
The Brits united under Prime Minister Winston Churchill’s leadership to defend their nation at all costs. They refused to give up, even as their cities were repeatedly bombed. The British had an advantage over the Germans: radar, which they invented. The Brits knew exactly when the Luftwaffe was coming, in what strength and at what altitude. RAF fighters,
Fluffy is a 5-year-old spayed female mediumhair mix, ID 76340. Fluffy has a sweet, gentle disposition, is affectionate and loves people.

Her gentle disposition and tolerant nature make her a great cat for being around gentle children. Fluffy is available for adoption at the Escondido Humane Society, 3450 E. Valley Parkway. Her $85 adoption fee includes spay, microchip, up-to-date vaccinations and vet exam. For more information, call (760) 8882247 or log on to www.escondidohumanesociety.org.

“Spitfires” and “Hurricanes,” kept German air raids at bay, but at great cost to the RAF. British and German aircraft factories were turning out planes as fast as possible to keep up with the daily destruction. Still, when the Battle of Britain ended, the British had lost some 900 aircraft to the Germans’ 2,300 planes. The RAF had nearly equalled their needed “four-to-one” combat ratio. Though the United States had yet to enter the war, President Roosevelt persuaded Congress to approve the “Lend-Lease” agreement, which sent ships, planes, guns, ammo, and desperately-needed food and medical supplies to the beleaguered British people. Historians generally agree that if the British nation had not stopped the Nazi aggression, an attack on North America would have been imminent. That one air battle might very well have preserved our democratic way of life instead of living under a dictatorship. One footnote to history – Goering asked his top fighter ace what he needed to defeat the British? Flight leader and fighter ace Adolf Galland replied: “Give me a squadron of Spitfires.” Goering was not amused.

Escondido • Mayor Sam Abed SPEND IT! In Escondido
With the busiest shopping season of the year in full swing now, this is a good time to remind residents about a community awareness campaign called Spend It! In Escondido. The focus of the campaign is to educate community members about the importance of shopping in Escondido. Every taxable dollar spent in Escondido benefits important City-provided services such as police and fire, senior services, libraries, street maintenance, street lights, parks and recreation. Sales tax generated from Escondido transactions (1% of
gross taxable sales), stays in Escondido and contributes to the quality of life you enjoy.
Purchases generating sales tax revenue are critical to a healthy Escondido economy. But it’s not just about sales tax revenue: While the goal is to increase sales during the busiest shopping time of the year, there are other benefits to shopping locally. If you stay in town, you save on gas, you discover new businesses you might not have otherwise visited, and you contribute to community pride and the health of the Escondido business environment. More information about Spend It! In Escondido is available online at http://www.escondido.org/spend-itin-escondido.aspx

Tails at Twilight Gala Sets AllTime Fundraising Mark – It’s safe to say that the Escondido Humane Society’s “Tails at Twilight” Gala, the dog-friendly event held recently at Vintana in Escondido, was a resounding success, raising $195,000, more funds for the animals at EHS than ever before in the event’s 20-year history. Nearly 300 attendees – and some well-dressed canine companions – helped raise the funds for the 542 animals currently in its care, as well as the thousands more expected to seek shelter at the Humane Society this year. All guests enjoyed live and silent auctions, entertainment by comedian Elayne Boosler, a hosted bar of wine and beer, and dinner. Heather Myers from San Diego 6 emceed the gala for the fifth straight year, and auctioneer Cheryl Parker presided over the live auction, which featured travel packages, a “Healey Dog” by artist Elizabeth

Don’t Touch My PC!
In some parallel universe each person may be born with a personal computer and a lifetime upgrade contract. In our universe, that apparently was not part of God’s plan. We find ourselves forced to share computer resources with others in homes schools and businesses simply because it’s too expensive to provide PCs for each and every possible user. Businesses and schools make accommodations for multiple users, but for home and small business users, sharing a PC can be downright unpleasant.
relatives, Grandchildren, friends, even our own kids and spouses can turn a normally
Business Groups Rank the Legislature
This month, the California Chamber of Commerce (CalChamber) and the American Council of Engineering Companies of California (ACEC) released legislative scorecards to indicate whether legislators supported business industry needs. I am proud to report that I earned 100% on both scorecards.
The California business climate has been one of the worst in the nation for many years, and I believe we need to do more to change this. Businesses struggle to succeed here, which contributes to high unemployment and a stagnant economy. The CalChamber and ACEC represent the concerns of small and large businesses, when many government lead-
friendly and well behaved PC into a raging evil demon bent on destroying domestic tranquility and savaging the family budget. We try to protect our privacy by assigning multiple user login icons on the desktop and by password protecting our own user login and that helps. But if another user downloads a bit of malware, it will infect the entire operating system (OS) not just that particular user’s files. The OS underlies all users. If one gets infected, all get infected. Being victimized by a careless user is like being mugged. It’s a terrible thing when the thought of smothering her own grandchild in its sleep brings a fleeting smile to a Nana’s sweet, careworn face. There is little you can do to protect your notebook PC so the answer is simple. If you fancy a long and stress-free existence, don’t let anyone touch your notebook PC. We’ve collected a list of excuses. The two at the top right now are “Oh dear, I’ve forgotten my password,” or “I have a fungal infection and the doctor has quarantined my computer.”
One alternative is to order an extra “guest” hard drive and “hard drive dock” when you purchase your new PC.
Here’s how it works. You order your PC with a “dock” and extra hard drive. We install the “dock” in the PC and give you two identical hard drives. The user designates one as “my drive” and the other as “guest drive.” Normally “my drive” is in the “dock.” When the “guest” needs the computer “my drive” comes out and “guest drive” goes in. It takes five seconds. Nothing the “guest” does can effect “my drive.” When the guest is gone simply switch the drives back. The cost of adding a 500GB “guest” drive and “dock” to a new PC is about $100 ($25 for the dock and $75 for the hard drive). Retrofitting the “guest drive” and “dock” to
an existing PC includes the cost of “cloning” the “user drive” and is around $150.
There are some other interesting possibilities with “docks” and “guest drives.” Each person in the family, office, school or other user group can be given his or her own personal hard drive. That completely insulates users from one another. Additionally, installing two “docks” in a PC gives users the ability to do scans, clones or restores from a “master.” This can be a big money and time saver for schools and business. The “docks” we use also feature an ESATA or “external SATA port” that permits booting and running a PC from a completely external hard drive. That presents more interesting possibilities.
For that home or business desktop there are alternatives.
ers do not. However, some of my Republican colleagues and I are strong advocates for legislation that would reduce the burden of overregulation and support business needs.
Unfortunately, few pro-business policies become law, and Californians are left with a regulatory environment that directly impacts every community’s economy, business’ bottom line, employee’s compensation, and family’s checking account balance. I will continue to support the solutions like those included in the CalChamber and ACEC scorecards, those that better the economy and improve job opportunities.

Sam Brumit, Pastor, Mission 316 Church San Marcos, CA. Telling the Truth
Do you tell the truth? Ever stretch it? Before you say never, let me remind you of Webster’s definition of a lie. To lie is either “to make an untrue statement with intent to deceive” or “to create a false or misleading impression.” In a survey of 2,624 readers the percentage of those who said they had: 1. Switched price tags to get a lower price: 12% 2. Cheated on their tax return: 17% 3. Misstated facts on a resume/job application: 18% 4. Lied to their spouse about
In Biblical times as well as now, people tended to fudge on their words. This caused Jesus to say “Simply let your 'Yes' be 'Yes,' and your 'No,' 'No'; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.” (Matthew 5:37)
Do you have to add a lot to your words to get folks to believe you? Integrity is really the issue. Integrity is characterized by honesty, sincerity, and uprightness in all one’s dealings. A person of integrity can be counted on in what he says and in what he commits to do. The quickest way to lose your integrity is with your words. David Jeremiah says “Integrity is keeping my commitments even if the circumstances when I made the commitments have changed.” Is your yes, yes and your no, no?
