It was hard to disentangle the various levels of the above message, so 
forgive me if I wrongly attribute the above statement to you, Jim.
Actually, it was the fact that it came from you that was surprising.
"Most of us"-- I'm not quite so sure about that.  Perhaps if you keep
beating me over the head I'll grant that the issue isn't a closed case,
but minimally I would say that it's the only likely hypothesis.
