Thanks DC--it's truly a team effort here and I learn so much everyday from our collective experience and hope.
I agree with HL that you are neither dazed nor confused any longer, and maybe you might think about a new "handle" for yourself on the list.
You're excellent with language--any ideas?

All the study in the world - and all the subjective hierarchies - won't get people sober. . .
Only action can do that."
