	Ha! << snicker >> ... I was watching some stuff about {r}ationality

	1989, something I said freaked out a fellow hacker who wanted to
	know why he shouldnt go home and blow his head off.  Or come back
	and gun down a bunch of us.  Sigh.

	is this openoffice?   how about libreoffice?  I'll gooogle 
	around for "frame"....

	I'll mess around with what I have and see.  meanwhile my shoulder
