"Interesting idea," he said. "I hope you realize what I can't tell you."
"Do you know Brian Kazminski?," I asked.
"Yes," he said. "He is a junior physicist that works with us. He has done some great work for us."
"What does he do for you?"
He thought for a moment. "One of the most important tasks in our research is to shoot a beam of particles into small holes. It sounds easy, but it's not. We need very careful control over the beams, and that's where Kazminski comes in. He tells us how to control our beams, and we do what he says. It helps us get our work done."
"I've seen Cal State-Bakersfield before. Why is Kazminski there?"
"They brought him there. We needed him to be close."
"Close to what?"
I decided to change my approach. "Who is 'they'"?
"I can't tell you that now. I'll call back." He hung up.
I'm learning more as we go. I hope he calls back soon.
