What qualifies as 'moderate aerobic exercise?'  When I'm in good condition,
which is in the late fall and spring, I usually stamp out about six miles
a day, two days on, one day off, in about forty minutes, maybe a little
less.  I wouldn't want to give this up, as when I am in condition, I feel
a _lot_ better:  I only need one cup of coffee in the morning, I go to
sleep more quickly, etc.  I've also been thinking about taking up resis-
tance exercise again.  Would the program I am describing be considered
moderate?

"Deserves it!  I daresay he does.  And many die that deserve life.  Is it in
your power to give it to them?  Then do not be so quick to deal out death in
judgement, for even the very wise may not see all ends."
