Hi Adam,
        While I find your commentary fascinating, I not with interest and
distaste that your previous post was dated 5-12-04 and this most
resent post is dated 5-13-04. This puts and keeps your email at the
top of my (and everyone's) "in" list and is a scam used by spammers.
    I am sure that is not your intent and encourage you to set your
program to today's date.
   Again - very interesting information - thanks, Michael
