Ah, I wish it were a business. If it were, after all my efforts,
I'd be rich, as opposed to, sigh, very non-rich.

Yup. My problem, Kathy, was that in this instance your comments
struck me as ill informed and un-insightful. But nobody is
trying to abrogate your or anybody's right to an opinion, sound
or unsound.


Cordially,
