Damn!!!  I musta deleted that original message, seeing that the subject
didn't apply to me...

What is this?  Was Audi bitching about the blue "Storm Fencing...?"

Un-freakin'-believable!!!  (If you saw it on the tube while we were holding
it up, Yer Kindly Ol' Unka Bart was holding the left end)

Ney, Steve, don't do that, that Urq of your's is too nice to let fall into
someone else's hands.  But the finger bit works...

Perhaps even better would be sending the "storm-fencing" to AutoWeek,
nicely packed with a large jar of Vaseline and a cover letter expressing
our disappointment.  The cover letter would request that the contents be
delivered, *together*, to the president of AoA.  The letter should be
solicitous in tone, and express the sentiment that we are returning the
banner to AoA as they obviously have a greater need than we, and we are
including the Jar of vaseline for obvious reasons, out of compassion ...
