That was a joke from Brad I believe. :wink:
A sad story indeed.
The only thing that worries me is that someone who doesn't have a teacher and doesn't bother to read the reviews might mistake this for a "translation", when it is not. It won't matter in a hundred years and I doubt it will soil Nishijima Roshi's reputation much.
I believe Jundo's intentions in trying to stop the publication and writing his review were good.
I believe Brad's intentions in publishing his teacher's work were good.
And intentions do matter.
