and many of us do it on the fly. Mistakes happen. There's a lot of good
done on this list, let's concentrate on that.

I've always wished to be clever and witty, but am not. However, those who are
need the rest of us to appreciate their wit, right? So lets give Beth an
yuk, then pay attention to the rest of the message.
