Doug:

Apparently, you didn't get the memo about brevity being the soul of wit, any more than you saw the notation in the introduction to our group, regarding the fact that I want to keep posts in the comment section under 20 lines or 200 words. I'm going to ask you now to move your commentary to a separate discussion under the Quotes group, in keeping with that policy. Either you can do it yourself, or I will do it later.
