Thanks for your first-hand report on Halbfass, Andy. It's always good to 
hear people talk about the mentors who have shaped their lives in 
positive directions, and its especially good to hear such testimony 
coming from people who have many of the same qualities of the mentors 
whom they praise.

As for Dick Cheney, it is hard to see him mentioned in ANY discussion, 
unless it is a discussion about miscreant politicians being sent to 
prison for crimes against humanity. But you won't drag me into another 
political discussion. Not until tomorrow.
