    George, I had a thought today. Go to  amazon.com and write a review. That's
    probably the best impact you could have on  the "goulash" that is 1421.
    It's worth your time. Carefully crafted,  fun to read on its own terms,
    devastating in its factual insights, a smart book  review can be a work of art.
    PLEASE, help this trashy pseudo-history find its  way to the bustbin of history!
    The history of China in general, and the history  of the extraordinary 15th
    century fleets of Zheng He, are vital and fascinating,  and they do not deserve
    to be converted to fantasy by an eccentric crank like  Gavin Menzies.
