I find this date particularly amusing in view of the fact that I am way, 
way overdue in replying to your helpful message about the Tselina elints. 
But I'm not so overdue as to deserve this date!!!! 
I do apologize, and hasten to assure you that I have not forgotten, nor 
lost interest.  In fact, I am busily assimilating a good bit of data 
kindly provided by Allen Thomson and fully intend to have a reply for you 
in the foreseeable future.

Very interesting.  You wouldn't happen to know which of these commands was 
commanded by the general whose predilection to squire his mistress around 
in Air Force jets at $5000 per hour was disclosed by the media (CBS' 60 
Minutes? or ABC's 20/20?)?

Has anyone paid attention to whether there might be any preference for one 
or the other?  I recall pointing out that EGP's name changed to EGS.  But 
no one I know seems to care.  Does anyone have statistics about which type 
of name predominates?

Always leave them wanting more.
