Set the Tone
Your USGlass magazine is tops. I just wanted to let you know, for what
it’s worth, that the first thing I read is the last page—Lyle Hill’s column.
He sets the tone and the mood for the rest of the magazine.

Cowboys’ Stadium Correction
I read your article concerning the Cowboys Stadium (see September 2009
USGlass, page 38) and I noticed a couple of things that should be corrected:
1. Haley-Greer installed all the exterior glass for the stadium.
Your caption below the photo reads that we installed more than 30,000
square feet. I think you meant to say “more than 300,000 square
2. Sixth line down in the third column on page 40 reads: “We needed a
pool test on all our sealants.” The test for the sealants is called a
pull test, not pool test. A pull test is done to check for sealant
adhesion to the substrate(s) in which the sealant has been applied to.
Otherwise, it is a very good article.

Stop the Spam
I received this obnoxious unsolicited email (a.k.a. “SPAM”) from yet another
Chinese company seeking to benefit from unfair trade.
… Hereby, I would like to introduce our company as a professional windows
and doors manufacturer and exporter from China. We can make PVC and aluminum
windows and doors according to your requirement. Once you provide the
size and detailed requirements, we will make the drawings for your further
confirmation, and make quotation based on it …
In a struggling economy, why must American companies endure competition
from importers selling products that do not have to meet the same requirements
for employee health and safety, benefits, environmental impact, product
performance and safety testing? They even boast of their Certificate
for Product Exemption from Quality Surveillance Inspection!
It is time that our industry and its trade publications made a stand against
