I would not paint you folks, all contemporaries of mine with that broad a 
brush. There seems to be an endless supply of folks who never heard of 
TANSTAAFL, and once hearing about it, are convinced it doesn't apply to 
them. A western movie actor named Marion Morrison when he was born, in a 
county seat town about 7 miles from where I grew up, you know him as 
John Wayne, once said "stupidity should be painfull" comes to mind, but 
in our so-called PC society today, theres a painkiller for that. Dammit.

That said, its time to go back to bed, I try to be a good geek, checking 
my email when my kidneys get me up. ;-)
