one type of reading definitely affects others. The fact that other people
may experience this differently is what makes horseraces.

Actually, your post hadn't even arrived in my mailbox when I wrote. I was responding to the orginal poster.

Our six to your five senses
And the pastures close and the traveller knows
That the world's cut up by fences
To catch the gypsy."
