:) While RM does have a broad scope where it excels, is it God's ultimate gift to mankind? Could someone convince me it is, by showing how RM is better at modelling/querying the simple example at www.dbfordummies.com/example/ex005.asp where john has black skin and red-blue hair; and mary has white-smooth skin and red-silky-smooth hair.
