@ Gremlin,

Keep repeating your mantra. The creek separates us all!

Now back to complaining about HSR. We've got to keep our priorities straight!

If this is the same E.P.A. when I left CA, it probably will be easier to report the fact that there was no gunplay in east Palo Alto. Now THAT would be NEWS!
