	Nope, John does not read the newsgroups, so he will never realize the
slight to his honour -unless I tell him!  But, Al Shostak, just across
the hallway, reads this newsgroup!  Al can keep a secret, though.

	One other paper that did not get mentioned but is worthy of note:

Poulin, Brodeur, and Moore.  1994.  Parasite manipulation of host
behaviour:  should the host always lose?  Oikos 70:479-484.

This could also be pulled from an online service (e.g., CC, Biosis, Helm
Abs, etc.).
