    Re: Places where Slocum mentions navigation-related items

    Mr. Reed and all on list,I think it would be best if none of us make comments about anyone's family or personnal history on list.None of us knows the personal history of any other list member and if a comment will offend.If any comment won't do anyone any good your childish weedle below definitely qualifies.I deeply resent the below remark!For your information my mother,a Lt. Cmdr. in the U.S. Navy,died while on active duty in 1966.Be advised;don't make that mistake again.
    As for my posted comment it most assuredly has social redeaming value.You can't see the forest for the trees.The thread was interesting but turned banal and tedious.Perhaps you misunderstood what I was writeing,perhaps not.The thread toward it's end concentrated on 1 element of the whole story,ad nausium.
    That is my $0.02 on the matter.I just ran out of pennies.

    This sort of comment doesn't do anyone any good, Doug.

    Oh, and your mother wears army boots! <tee hee> Just kidding... I'm sure your mother wears very fashionable shoes.
