hmmm ... suppose I need to check with Cary and Anjo and see if they can attribute the original sentiment to someone.

I really hope it's someone other than Cary ... I'm already quoting his work on two methods; I'd like to have a little more variety in my references :)

I do like the quote from Anjo. It's more precise than the one I was planning to use.

thank you and additional recollections would be appreciated ... Robyn
