My "track record" covers 30 years, it didn't start with ASM. On B5 alone I
wrote 91 out of 110 scripts and we never missed one shooting day. The scripts
for the next batch are already in and stacking up. But I ain't looking to
establish something in my career that I've long ago established. That's simply
how I've always worked.

Nothing defensive about it, just laying out the facts. Funny how some folks
don't think there's anything *antagonistic* in being critical, but there's
something *defensive* in correcting those facts.
