well well well...we're all ears. we love tom. doesn't mean we can't change our minds. we're reasonable sorts who will listen to reason. and hey, that sounds so harsh, especially in light of the fact, no official rejection messages have been sent to anyone. so yeah, after you watch sky blue spark the runway for the 50th time or rita spinning on time lapse for the 800th time or the price of oil gas burning a hole in your pocket or greenspan trying to fudge his way out of a global depression or cindy marching on washington or how much water will it take to break a broken levee...send us the word. we always listen to uncle stu. as always, we're in your corner. keep swinging.

I'm all for more Walmsley *and* higher gas oil prices burning holes into our pockets. Long live Dr. Tin.
