"It is chiefly through books that we enjoy the communion with superior
minds. In the best books, authors talk to us, give us their most
precious thoughts, and pour their souls into ours. God be thanked for
books."
-William Ellery Channing

I have forgotten this and substituted the internet. I will no longer
make this mistake.

'fluff'. Doogy should write a book on 'Fluffing'. I hear he and Dave
Keiser were great 'fluffers' in their day:).
