Uhmn -- I'm afraid I had a similar reaction to his Excellency's, but I did
want to add this, as a deputy A&S person:
Please tell your Anda, Baron Corun, that I applaud most fervently (and
possibly fermently!) his efforts in true recreation of a period -- uhh --

of it, just so I could say I had done so ....
But don't quote me on that! :-)
