    To use a simple word, BINGO! is what I said when I saw the 
    Cargo Cult hypothesis set out.  It ended a search for me.  
    I won't live long enough to polish the idea but I can try.

    Thank you, David.  You answered a lot of questions with that
    suggestion.  It will take years to put together the answers.
    It will also be fun watching it done.
