Dear Dr. Zander:

Thanks for taking up for us "superannuated duffers."  As a "hard parts, hand 
lens" person I work at trying to interpret some of the messages that flow 
through here. The verbiage used often reminds me of a dinner party hosted by 
a friend at which lobsters, not a common meal here in the deep south, were 
the main course.  After dinner the hostess went in the kitchen where the 
cook was packing up leftovers to take home and saw the empty lobster shells 
were on the table. She asked why, as they were absolutely of no use. The 
cook replied that she knew they were no good, but she was taking them as 
they sure would make her garbage look classy.
