Dear Bill Pugh et al,

As a relative newcomer to the concept of the Java Memory Model,
I find Figure 1, referred to in section 3, of Bill Pugh's draft* to be
confusing. Are there typos, or have I missed something?

Could someone kindlly tell me:

What do the variables a and b have to do with anything? Where
do b1 and b2 come from?

Thank you for your attention.
