    Dear Greg,

    When you reply with an incomplete sentence like this,
    it is very helpful if you include the sentence to which
    you reply.

    In my previous message I find the statement that there
    is no way to represent a piece of the sphere in the plane,
    so that you can measure with a ruler the angular distances,
    using the same scale everywhere on your picture.

    For THIS statement, I don't need to read anything, because
    this statement is true:-)

    If you somehow take the unequal distortion into account, I asked
    you to explain how exactly.
    If this was addressed in some previous discussion,
    I will appreciate if you point the date, time and title.

    Alex.
