  1. Gee Whiz! The footnote has got to be the longest question I have ever read.

  2. Yes. Eighty-two words in all, I think? [if you count the hyphenated ones as two words]. Thanks for bringing that to my attention. Sorry I could not make the question longer :-)

  3. Jacques, very good post. It kinda makes one feel guilty about being able to live the life we do. Its not that people are dumb, we just become complacent in our lives. Sometimes the seed of thought will take root. Bill
