Ben, I'm blocked from participating in the intellectual goodness of the EB
because I'm a "known spammer," as I discovered when I tried to register. I
have other e-mail addresses, but, why bother? So, if I do a search from the
home page that returns nothing, then "that spells _finis_"  - to coin a phrase
-  for me.
