  A sweeping generalization, to be sure. Like other stereotypes, this one may
or may not be based in fact...and if it is, there are likely a large number of
exceptions to it.

  I hope none of the AOLers here take it personally. In the short time I've
been on this list, I've found that EVERYONE here contributes in a positive way
at one time or another...regardless of what their email address looks like.
