Bzzzt. Hummmm. Fzzzt. Squeee. Maybe I was wrong about my
responses last week in the thread on mailing list quality. I have just
recently noticed a lot of noise coming through with the signal. No offense
(as usual) to Greg or Kathryn, but are the vocal utterances --and the rarity
of these utterances-- of eagles truly relevant to the extropian ML???? I'm
sure Churchill was just making a point. No need to crow over it. It has a
tendency to ruffle one's feathers. :-)
