     My response---------

     Firstly, so-called "fame" is way overrated.  Or, in the classic words of
my son, Clint when he was a fiesty age of 19........"dad, if you are so
damned smart and famous, why ain't we rich!"  I laughed at his truth then and
am still laughing today at his statement.  Fame is little more than stealth
vanity.

     Thanks for reminding me.

Ed
