(FoRK has gotten *way* out of hand today. This is ridiculous.
And I *still* want my pink slippers pix! Every post I saw with
this subject line has disappointed - none of them are relevant
to my quest. I think I'll take an existing pic of Rohit and grab
some clipart slippers and tack'em on, just to make a fake.)
