(Testimony of Ira Jefferson "Jack", Jr. Beers)

Mr. Griffin.
I might add also that I did not interview you prior to taking this deposition?
Mr. Beers.
No, sir.
I have never met you before in my life.
Mr. Griffin.
If there is anything else that you think we haven't covered here that comes to your mind after this deposition is concluded, we would appreciate it if you would let us know. And if it is something of importance, we might want to talk to you again.
But I certainly want to thank you for coming here and taking your time. I realize you people are all busy, and it is an imposition to take you away from your work, and we certainly are very grateful that you are willing to take out this time and appear before us and give us this information.
Mr. Beers.
Thank you, Mr. Griffin, you are very welcome.
Mr. Griffin.
It is a pleasure to have met you.
Mr. Beers.
I wish I could help you a lot more.
Mr. Griffin.
This is rather a methodical process we have to go through talking to people, but you are all finished.
Mr. Beers.
Thank you very much.
