Sorry you don't like it, Brian - But as you well know, the comment came
from someone who was attempting to be as nasty as he could be at that

Whether you like the picture or not isn't really the point. First, I
wasn't trying in any way to insult Don. Second, as I said, I do like the
image. But there is more than a bit of the bizarre and grotesque about
it - and that may be the very thing that appeals to me. And as I said, I
can see even through the strange image that his daughter is an
attractive young lady. Had SHE, rather than the image, appeared to be
grotesque, I certainly wouldn't have commented.

B.D., the picture of me that you have in your gallery is, by a country
mile, the most grotesque picture of me ever taken. I remember that
someone said I looked like a child molester (I banished him from the LUG
for that comment, but he deserved banishment for other reasons).
