Apparently this fellow Steve Schneider failed to recognize my humor,
as he's contacted me offlist to chide me about my repartee with Larry.
I won't post his private words here, since that would be
inappropriate - in fact, alot of folks would feel the manner in which
he contacted me was offensive (thought I'm not offended; in fact, I
kind of enjoyed Steve's message in some ways, though in others not so
much.  It's difficult to for me to tell how much he's joking/getting
on my case since I'm so hopped up on caffeine).

Then again, perhaps I'm the only one laughing.  It's difficult to
tell, as I also had a codeine earlier today, one of those rare treats.
In any case, before receiving Steve's provocative message, I had
already contacted Larry (Mr. Block) to clarify in case I had offended.
I won't speak for Larry, but I don't think he's had enough of me yet,
and I'm guessing he'll stick around.

Maybe it's best we all lay off the substance-abuse references for
awhile.  If anyone here needs help, it's me.  I've been drinking an
abnormal amount of coffee than usual, and Steve was perceptive in an
earlier post - it's Peet's (though certainly not decaffeinated).  I
really have a problem here, folks, so please bear with me.  Perhaps
I'll do best to stand back to stand back and watch the action for
awhile, at least until I switch to green tea or something.

So please, continue with the conversation...
