Well, I'm certainly happy that you find my taints interesting, but I
actually went into this thing full of hope. I was still full of hope
after 90% was over. (I cheered internally when he bolted the
bull at the funeral - and when he decided to press on with the
research.) Then came the crap that reversed everything (including
my opinion). At the time, it sure seemed to me that I *was*
disappointed. But maybe you're right - I really had no idea that it was
just my world view twisting my mind. Thanks for the handy tip!
