C'mon, Rick! Lighten up! Do you run everything you post to the net through
spelling checkers, grammer analyzers, etc., or are you merely blessed with
perfect mastery of the English language?
I don't think it is fair that Jerry is singled out for a lot of criticism
simply because one might recognize his name. (Or, perhaps be envious of
his fame?) And I really don't think it is fair that we waste all the
net.micro.cpm'ers time with this subject! All future criticism of Pournelle
to net.flame, agreed!
