I was not engaging Paul Reiber, I was telling Bruce *not* to
enter into a conversation with Paul Reiber.

Security looked concerned to me. Someone from security approached
and started talking to Paul Reiber after you tried calming him
down and failed to calm him down. Paul Reiber continued using
scatalogical(sp?) language in a loud voice. You then had
security take us into the Kiev room and told Paul Reiber to
stay in the lobby. While we were in the Kiev room, someone,
I don't remember who, came in spoke with Jim and Heather. That
person, Jim, and Heather left and came back very late into
the meeting without Paul Reiber.
