thanks.  :)

i suspect some folk may be missing a few clues here.  first is that you
and i have been friends since the late '80s.  second is that i was a
founding board member of arin.  and third, there is the concept of the
loyal opposition.

i just think that we, as a culture, have let things get waaaay out of
whack.  john is paid to defend the status grow.
