Hi Sneaky,
I'm thinking you need to add another check to your other "reaction" checks -- maybe something like "you've got to be kidding" (which, of course, you are), "you've got too much time on your hands" (which, of course, you do) or "just plain nutty" (we KNOW that one fits).
Keep on keeping on...
Jackie

I didn't know that Counts did such lowly jobs as to keep us abreast of important meetings, but we peasants appreciate knowing about gatherings so relevant to our interests. Neither the Morganton Times Herald not the Charlotte Observer mentioned any of these. For some strange reason I am also reminded of of this quote from Mark Twain: “It is by the fortune of God that, in this country, we have three benefits: freedom of speech, freedom of thought, and the wisdom never to use either."
In that spirit I will continue to watch for the Count's revelations.
Respectfully,
Prince Hua, son of Hin
