Dear Vince;

The writer holds with the Harvard School of Business that nothing should =
be repaired, only replaced. This of course heavily discounts the actual =3D
educational value that would acrue to someone who went through the =3D
process you described, educating themselves, and therfore becoming a =3D
reservoir of understanding valuable to both themselves and society. =3D
Admiral Nimitz, however, would applaud your position; because he seldom =3D
accepted Business School grads in his Nuclear Navy....... they just =3D
couldn't contribute anything useful to the Navy. He accepted mostly =3D
Engineering grads. Of course, Paul Gerhold may be speaking 'tongue in =3D
cheek'........ I do hope so.

Good on you mate! Hank in Eugene
