I find it very interesting that in your response to someone who believes he
was misattributed you misattributed ME! The first time I heard the quote at
the bottom of this page, "The key to life...." was from none other than the

and punitive damages from Mr. Rifkin. On a personal note, Adam, thank you
for my birthday present!
