Other issues that I have not yet seen publicly addressed regard the
questions -- Were public employees on the public payroll when the book
was being produced?  Did anyone involved receive personal profit? What was
the initial print run? If not published for anyone's personal profit, but
as a fundraising effort, then the details should be public record. Are
they? Why was Little Brown, the publisher, involved when the government has
their own printing office? Did Little Brown go through a bid process for
rights to publish the book? If so, the amount they paid should be public
record.  Is it?

Martin is correct in stating "the issues regarding this book are more
serious than a series of "mistakes" would imply."
