    Londo: down the toilet.

    I dunno where the money went. The WTS would have to qualify for the funds somehow - grant funding is usually for a specific project.

    But...the film "Knocking" was released in 2006, and one of the major sources of funding for that "independent" (*snicker*) film was the New York Community Trust.

    Major funding provided by
    Walter Zaremba
    Gunther Reibling
    New York Community Trust

    Heh...NYCT is listed right after two JW names - Zaremba And Reibling.

  • nowwhat?
    Walter zaremba is from my area I've known him since the late 1960's he and his brothers are multi millionares in construction and realty development. I always wondered how a super intelligent guy like him never figured out ttat. Now I know why.
