Dr. Bob--Could you have pulled the trigger a tad early this time? I don't believe that Cam is ever intentionally uncivil--he's too inately kind. But, neither is he too successful at humor, sometimes. (We have that in common, you see.) Aha! Finally, proof that Cam and bob are not the same person!
In fact, I probably should ease up on Cam myself before I get in any deeper, remembering that "once burned" should be "twice shy."
All of us (including BJ) might do well to keep in mind that although knowledge may be power, "a little knowledge is a dangerous thing" (A. Pope).
(And then there's my personal corollary to that, "More of a little is still not much.") That's the great thing about this board, though; the synergistic effect of lots of little bits of knowledge create a "whole greater than the sum of its parts."
Sorry, I seem to be suffering from a major aphorism attack.--medlib
