Sorry for the misquote, and thanks Beth for such a sweet letter. What
happened was this. I simply used the the reply command to what appeared
to be the original post and it automatically says "so and so says:..."
Of course people should never be misquoted. However, it was not the sort
of misquote that would reach the papers!
Sorry for causing such a furore and sorry for the misquote! Forgiven???:>
