If Akin Gump’s managers had been apprised by Elaine Wranik of the existence of the enclosed notes, might the notes not help explain the seeming sudden change in Dennis Race’s attitude toward me in the period immediately following my meeting with him and Malcolm Lassman on October 24, 1991. I transmitted to my sister, Mrs. Estelle Jacobson, on September 26, 1992 a letter detailing the events at the time of my job termination. The letter to my sister discusses what appeared to be a sudden shift in Dennis Race’s attitude in the period after my meeting with him on October 24, 1991.
I forwarded a copy of the notes to the FBI under cover letter dated February 3, 1995.
There were a few things I couldn't tell Mr. Lassman and Mr. Race yesterday, Oct 24, because I would appear insane. I see certain things--chalk it up to paranoia or reality testing.
--I believe that on October 2,  Mr. Lassman had a particularly difficult telephone conversation with my sister, that my sister became hysterical, and that the incident that afternoon with one of the legal assistants was an attempt to enrage me in an effort to counteract my sister's behavior earlier in the day. (Earlier that day a few people were saying, "She's crazy"--which I inferred to relate to my sister.
--The afternoon I was offered chocolate I believe there had been some communication with Jesse Raben either earlier that day or previous day. It was that day that I had changed my computer password to "FAUSTLINE 4399"
-- I believe that on Wed July 3 1991 there was some communication with an outside party that reflected negatively on the masculinity of a male employee in litigation support. There was an attempt that day to adduce evidence of my "gayness." Hence, my appointment calendar entry re "Desire to play a small room, instead of the big theater."
--It was my perception that the harassment became excruciatingly intense in April 1990, beginning just a few days after the Anti-Defamation League would have received a letter I sent re: Anti-Semitic harassment. I inferred that management must have alerted the Anti-Defamation League in advance, requesting that the organization inform the firm of any communications I might have with it.
--On the issue of my perceptiveness: It is my belief that Mr. J.D. Neary met with Dr. Palombo on Monday, April 16, 1990.
--The incident on the elevator with Mr. Eisenstat occurred shortly after I changed my computer password to "shanepisk." I think he just thought I was a crackpot. -- No harm, no foul, guy.
--Also--here are some impressions I had while meeting with Mr. Race & Mr. Lassman. They are simply impressions, not firm conclusions. Maybe a psychiatrist could determine just how paranoid these impressions are.
--Mr. Race's reference to the fact that Mr. Eisenstat is "intense" -- possible meaning -- reference to "in tents, intense, in tenths" -- reference to John Falk. Attempt to arouse, or determine the existence of homosexual anxiety, which is material on the issue of the nature of my perceptions.
--Mr. Race's reference to fact that my office on 9th floor was across from recruiting. = possible attempt to gently remind me that he is chairman of the hiring committee to determine whether that arouses anxiety in me.
-- Mr. Race's reference to possibility that Mr. Eisenstat had some problem with his wife. Attempt to determine existence of Oedipal anxiety.
--Both Mr. Lassman & Mr. Race seemed to get mildly excited when I mentioned Paul Wageman, as if they were keenly interested in what I had to say about him.
--Mr. Lassman seemed impressed with my analysis of "July." I noted that the previous evening my sister's voice seemed to catch when she mentioned the word "summer." (And I wondered why?)
-- Mr. Lassman seemed particularly interested to see whether my voice caught on any words. He seemed to very mildly reflex when I used words with possible double meanings. (I had noticed the same thing about Mr. Segal the previous afternoon.) (Mr. Segal seemed to note my use of word roof - just why, I don't know.) Maybe because he's always thinking real estate!) (Just between you and me, Ms. Wranik, I think Mr. Race is an OK guy--I realize it's a business decision).
"I just want to come in the office and work."
"I spoke with her for 15-20 minutes."
"It requires concentration." (concentration camp?)

A mouse named Ulysses was housed in a cage
by the things he could see you could call him a sage
The scientists tested him
but he always bested them
He sized up their cues like a gauge.
