Re: Mr. Lawton/QCUSA

"Glen Powell" edits a bit, and then editorializes:

A rather natural progression, I would think...

Perhaps Yer Kindly ol' Unka Bart muddied the water by replying to Scott 
who chided whomever was so rude to Jeff:

In this case, the "old kumquat" was a reference to Yer Kindly ol' Unka Bart.

Nothing offensive to anyone in that paragraph that I can see...

I don't know what Mr. Lawton said, and I'm sure that if he's a member of this
list, then his bona-fides as an "all 'round good guy (tm)" are well established.

On the other hand, Jeff hasn't said anything that could remotely be constured
by anyone with the ability to read and comprehend English, as "whining."

If he said that, he's gonna have to deal with Sister Mary-Margret and her 
dreaded "knuckle-whanger," and have no one to thank but himself...
