Michael,
	It was not my intent to slander you, and, I had no delusion
that you were responsible for Ed's words.  I think my reply was
focused entirely on your statement, however, I left Ed's words in
for context because your words made little sense without them.

	Again, while I mentioned you by name in this case, it was not
intended as a personal attack.  I know we often disagree, but, I think
I have always respected you in those disagreements.  I mentioned your
name only to clarify which portion of the quoted text my reply was
directed towards.

	Hopefully my attribution clarifications above will address
your concerns on this message:

	OD = Owen DeLong
	MD = Michael Dillon

	BTW, as near as I can tell, you didn't address my interpretation
of your statement.  Can I presume from that, my interpretation was your
intended meaning?


Owen
