I didn't think I was naive, but I guess I am.  Thanks for the reminder.

By the way, does anyone know why everyone else is (apparently) getting my posts, but I don't get them.  Does "the system" delete the originator, since s/he already obviously has the message?

Does anyone else find this incredible?   Do brain surgeons decide how to do
their work based on which equipment manufacturer makes the biggest donation??
