Great job eliot!  I think that it is about time that we decide that anyone on
the list can feed a bunch of bs to the list and we DON'T have to believe it.
I think that the torsen has become a scapegoat for drivers errors.  We all
make those and if anyone can look me in the eyes and say, "hey, I have never
made a driving mistake."  Then I will show you a liar or someone who is too
arrogant to be believed at any time.

Way to go eliot!
