Summary

When I was asked to present this paper, I wondered exactly what to talk about. Most of what I learned about raw materials I learned from people at this meeting. I then recalled the words my Irish grandfather said to me, “Son, whenever you walk into a room and there is little conversation and you wonder what to do or say, start a fight! At least then people will have something to talk about afterward.”
