To the list:

I responded to Bob Smith off-list, apologizing for my remark and explaining
that I
realize that Bob Ringwald is the moderator, he is the one to determine
of behavior and that I, being just another subscriber have no place in
to be its disciplinarian.

I did not send a copy to the list, because I went on further to provide Bob
with a
detailed explanation of the Stephen Strassberg situation that he
requested which
 of course would not be suitable here.

Guess I'm just a little touchy this morning since burning my oatmeal about a
half hour
ago  The kitchen is the one place where I consider myself pretty close to
being perfect
and when something reminds me that I am not, I don't take it too well.

Alcohol is necessary for a man so that now and then he can have a good
