Following my last post, and still trying to be fair to Mike, this is an
example of the patience with opponents that I accused Mike of lacking. So he
doesn't lack it *all* the time. I think you've made a reasonable comment,
here, Mike. I don't want things slowed down to much, but I agree we have to
address people's real concerns if we can.
