Well, folks hardly ever need to clear their throats in print, so I'm
guessing that means David Blythe's parenthetical expressions are
chuckles. So yes, this was a JOKE.
David, a dry sense of humor is a dangerous thing to wield on the net
(and I have the flames to prove it). If you want to avoid this sort or
misunderstanding in the future, I'm afraid you're going to have to
stoop to the indignity of using emoticons...
