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???:>
