I am stunned by this.  If you guys would change the subj:  line, I'd key
into these threads earlier.  DAMN IT:  CHANGE THE SUBJECT LINE WHEN THE
THREAD DRIFTS.  This isn't rocket science, and you guys are all MENSA
candidates, or you'd not be shooting Leica, now, would you?

I am on the WWII-L.  The veterans were horrifically impressed by SAVING
PRIVATE RYAN and hate THE THIN RED LINE.  Me?  I'm a retired light colonel,
but no one ever fired at my sacred body, so what do I know?  But I feel
that SPR is worthy of great respect, the exact opposite to the feeling I
have for that fallacious LIST flick he made.
