Why? Brown is new to me. Thank you for raising the subject!

This is why I am going to research Brown; it would be foolish to wholely assume one way or the other.

Indeed! Were it not for an at-first cult-following of Codd we would not have this A Relational Model of Data for Large Shared Data Banks we like to bicker about. Any cult-following is coincidental to its truth.

That should be `<ducking />'.

If I am reading too much into this then please do not take offense, but I must admit I somehow sense some agitation. It's most likely my fault since I am often (quite accidentally!) obtuse in conversation. Please have some patience with me, and I am quite certain no one was attacking your character in any of this; there was merely the correctly skeptical reaction necessary for the advancement of science.  I suspect *I* am the one over-reacting, so please cut me some slack.

Try taking some Zoloft,
