And the *real* Whooten is sitting out there wondering if I've gone
bonkers.  My apologies for mispelling Whetten's name.  8=)

Well, one last public word on fighter aircraft (you get to appreciate
those F4s and Mirages and Sky Hawks practicing overhead as you irrigate
your citrus groves in the shadow of the Lebonese border):

Yes, that's the way I understand it too.  So, looking back to the sense
of what I *originally* said: if I'm in a 8G turn trying to get my
Vulcan right on that guy's head....and the trim control computer goes
to sleep, can I just reach over and hand adjust it all without missing
a blink...or might I be in danger if I don't let off?  (OF course, answer
by email so we don't upset everyone  8=)  ).

Yes, of course, that's I would have said, too.
