Don't count on it; I'm also a misanthope. I don't fight on
behalf of others.

Only when provoked. I haven't been in a good, lively discussion
on this list in almost two years.
Hear me now and believe me later: I *really* tried to refrain
from fulminating on this whole Saddleback land grab. I'm sure
that some of you long-time listers can appreciate what an
effort that was on my part. Then, with only a week or so to
go, I made the mistake of wandering over to Trailplace and
browsing those "big thanks to..." messages.
The rest is history.

I'm not your "hiker buddy." Get your own damn chocolate.

If you say so.

It's not a trail name, but rather a stillborn nickname. In
college I used to room with the son of the (now) former head
of the Maine DIFW. His nickname was Bucky, his son's nickname
was Bucky, and for some reason a number of people at the
time started calling *me* Bucky. Since then, other associates
have occasionally called me by that name, but more for the
nonsensical Buckminster connection.
So don't ask me about my balls. :)
