Adam Butt: This is Adam.
Steven B. Krivit: Adam, this is Steven Krivit from New Energy Times. I talked with you, or I tried to talk with you, about a year ago regarding the Purdue stuff. Please don't hang up on me again.
SK: I understand that the situation, at least for some people, is pretty tense, and if you want me to talk with your attorney instead of you, I would be happy to do that, but I'd prefer to talk with you directly. Is your attorney Chuck Wilson?
AB: Yes, sir.
SK: Is it possible for me to send you my questions in writing, to give you more time to consider them before making your response.
AB: My response is going to be the same as it was. All of my involvement - you have it well-documented - it hasn't changed, it's out there. I just have no further comment because there's nothing else to say.
SK: OK, that's clear.
AB: I don't want to be rude.
SK: No, that's not being rude. If you have no further comment, I totally respect that, and I accept it.
AB: I appreciate that.
SK: So, you don't even want to see my questions?
AB: I couldn't respond. And if I did, the XO that I'd give you would be the same thing as you already have. I've seen what you have out there, and everything I've said is all over the Internet. I'm sure you've seen it. I'm sure you've seen my testimony.
SK: Yes, my questions are about your testimony.
AB: I'm going to have to go with 'no comment' then.
SK: If you ever change your mind, please know that door is always open, OK?
AB: OK, I appreciate that.
