zsas: you found a bit of the Socrates in me with my most devious methods of enquiry! You are both correct and incorrect. But I still will not drink the Hemlock. Psst! the rhetorical tautology is my safety factor, my persecution complex manifest from being beaten up so many times by the schoolyard bullies! I FORCE people to come to certain conclusions (and find out later that nothing significant was said!) My sin to mankind.
Bill Burke: I am so wary at camera shows that I am unaware of such wariness. This feeling is, at this point, inherent. I ASSUME that there are always problems and, like a fish that is a 'bottom feeder' I scrounge for the 'junk' that can be fixed. I am usually highly delighted and NEVER pay more than I think that I could get with not much trouble. The trouble is that I cannot bear to get rid of much. It is, in a way, a genuine sickness but at least I am never tempted to buy unless very, very cheap. There ARE dealers who want to get rid of stuff and I routinely tell them that I am willing to steal from you as long as such 'theft' is not illegal. But Bill, please don't say, simply, "rag and towel". Instead say DAMP rag and towel: that slight wetness does a hell of a lot to remove that grimy dust, permanently.
Truzi really reads me the best, though. This individual has actually succeeded in getting inside of my head (not that anyone would WANT to!) - - David Lyga
