I couldn't let this one go by without comment. I was very
pleased with Jonathan's second paragraph (nothing wrong
with the first). Brittney wrote this paper for her freshman
english class. We gave a copy to Nils, he shared it with
Mel and Mel sent it to CM. It went the circle to CM word
for word, no editing. I have told Mel and Nils thanks many
times, but let me publically say it again, Thanks. As many
of the group know I generally correspond off list--not this
time. And a big thanks to Jonathan for noticing the article.

and a jump south of Nils---and a few miles north of Hank)
