Tina and Ted, please tell us about the 'standoff on the steps' incident!
Can anyone post a link to the MP3 download of the broadcast?

Ted -

Any acknowledgement from Leica at all?  I wouldn't be surprised if 
they're still teed off about your standoff on the steps ;-)  HOWEVER, 
when looking at most of the photos that Leica chooses for its ad 
campaigns, maybe you should be glad that they aren't using 
yours!!  There is something to be said for being too good for the 
Leica executives' taste. :-D
