	cool, it was glued.  there is no evidence of glue on

	very good idea!  oddly enough, i just saw a couple 
	of inner tubes at a little sidewalk sale.  i passed

	heeeeey now i know what to do with it.  i'm going 
	to send it to linda at carlsen (that is her name, 
	right?) and sign it "love, the quattro list".

	sound like a plan?
