I truly do not think any of us knows the full depth of generosity that Phil shows for a whole lot of people in this country. Through the Brethren, and I don't, for a minute, believe it is really from the Brethren, Phil is making assurances that whatever we need, we will have the resources needed to make this thing happen.
I am speaking a little out of school here, but, I spoke with Phil yesterday, and I believe he was genuinely hurt, that I did not reach out to him and the Brethren first, to help make this happen. To be fair, I reached out to some local friends, and would never call someone in New York at 10pm West Coast time. Although I don't think Phil sleeps.
