### Dave: not to take anything away from your pissedoffedness, but I read
Herr Bug's comments to be in complete keeping with the tremendous font of
dry humor (and a goodly bit of it being self-effacing) that he's been
throwing out onto the list since Trail Days. Those of us lucky enough to
enjoy his company there -- and especially the Sunday Morning Reconing
breakfast in "the swamp" -- have been held in gut-busting hysterics (no
lie) with the droll little comments and quips with which he's been lacing
his emails. I take "...guess I'll just go cook under my sil-nylon" as akin
to him looking at his over-heated forearm and saying "Well! So much for
*my* safety speech! *Dang*, but that hurts!"

To borrow from those only chronologically younger...
"Dude! You need to *party* with this dude, dude! Sweet!"

Or, to borrow from the Bugly profession... 
<nodding sagely, he offers...>
"You have feelings about this."

Best to all,

Spatior, Nitor, Nitor, In Nitor!
