Whatsamatta, Greg?  Did we wake up Grumpy today?  :-)  Maybe we shoulda let
him (Grumpy) sleep?  :-)

Hey, seriously, that old 60 Minutes show sure created a lot of phony stir
about our beloved audimobiles.  But maybe we can look at it this way:  the
bad (but phony) publicity is at least part of what allows us to purchase
some exceptionally fine used Audis for bargain basement prices.  I may be in
the market for another one in a year or two.  Maybe we should get 60 Minutes
to run another Audi program?  :-)
