Sorry Chris, no offense intended, and no smilies.  In response to people
saying they felt harassed, offended, threatened and so on, I felt compelled
to encourage civil discussion for the free exchange of ideas and opinions.
Looks like I only fanned that flame.  I'm an American, by the way, if the
possibility that I wasn't is what offended you?

This is so off topic and, thanks especially to Chris, the important
discussion has been really percolating...sorry for the distraction.
