      Blimey you mean somebody actually READS that stuff I copy and paste!! Well
      done! The 'Leeds author' was probably Ken Fern, however I think I might just
      pass your comment back to the PFAF yahoo list and see if they can spin
      doctor their way out of that colemanballism....

      Cheers Graham
