Well, I think it illustrates that the advice we give is worth every penny it
cost the original questioner.

	The selection of the thickness of the slab is very much
	a function of the quality of the subgrade and the strength of the
concrete.
	 Failure to provide a proper subgrade could result in an un-economic
early
	failure of the slab.

	Why did none of us address the issue of the subgrade?  Did we
(myself
	included) have blinders on?
