Hrm, it didn't sound like Anthony was making a negative accusation there, he
was just stating the situation as he saw it. It does seem that Pia's trip to
Geneva was LA related, and strengthed by LA's relationship with LPI.

Although I don't think it's entirely relevant in this case (because it was
not related to LA) - there has been no LA communication about it. So, that
may further the confusion.

I think AJ's example was just an example, not an accusation. :-)
