   Jack, that's like trying to reconstruct Moses from a hangnail when
   you can't read the DNA.  It's hint but just that.  It doesn't justify
   creating the whole literary concoction from that one piece.

   I presume you saw Kent Weeks piece on KV-5.  Even after all the
   stuff is shown tell me what the whole thing was all about.   

   Get back to the DSS.
