    Re: Places where Slocum mentions navigation-related items

    When Doug Royer wrote-
    
    "You guys have a talent for trivialising the momentous and complicateing the
    obvious."
    
    I thought it was fair comment, that could be applied, just as well, to many
    of our discussions on this list.
    
    So I considered that the ensuing slap-down:
    
    "This sort of comment doesn't do anyone any good, Doug."
    
    was quite uncalled-for.
    
    As for the "joke" about his mother, that followed, it seemed to me to be a
    childish and disgraceful comment. How satisfying, then, that Doug was able
    to make such a devastating riposte about his mother, who must indeed have
    been a remarkable lady.
    
    George.
