      Thank you for attributing my quote to me, Mitch ("idiots" are supposed to be
      sigular, though = "idiot"). At least I don't think I have heard anyone else
      use that one....

      I have two more for you, that Bill Branscum, Sue Sarkis, and Bob Hrodey
      ought to find quite funny given the areas of PI work that they specialize
      in...

      "I refuse to accept responsibility for something that is entirely my fault"!

      and

      "I don't mind accepting some of the blame, but I do mind accepting any of
      the consequences"!

      They are honest quotes attributed to basic human nature.... LOL.
