I think you took this wrong.  It was a serious issue of historical facts,
but the remarks were more tongue in cheek.  I guess my sarcasm was lost
in written form.  Although all sarcasm has a hint of truth it rarely
indicates that the subject was wrong.  I applaud Jenner and everyone who
has come after him in putting the puzzle together.  I too have a high
powered education, in the proper setting etc....  I certainly have not
jumped off a bridge yet.

Have a beer Ken, science is fun............
