I guess my "regid" and "insinsitive world view" got in the way of a
close interpretation of the merits of NYPB Blue. I had to divest myself
of two setup drilling deals, hire three lawyers, and arrange for my part
of the family estate to be liquidated. Sorry, I just didn't have time
to check the spelling either.

Indeedy, Sean, Tom Reedy, or Claudius . . . .

I don't know, Ter, I just thought I did not like this thought and never
studied Marx thereafter . . . succinctly put, I studied another book
that seemed more relevant to gentle Will than t'other.
