I've been a subscriber to DJML for well over a year as a lurker, and
have read
every single digest during that time, but have never posted a message to 
the list.  Here is my very first submittal:

In response to Jim Beebe:

You did say it very nicely, and were not offensive, but my response is:
LEAVE STEVE ALONE!  His posts to this list are some of my favorite
readings, and I enjoy his reviews and other tidbits from N.Y. Times,

Just use your delete key.  Thank you.
