        I agree on both points. However, lemmie point out that because I was
robbed in Manhattan at the age of 12, I have no love for NYC. Rocker can
say whatever he likes. Besides, it's his skin, right?           :-)

        My son muttered that "Rocker ought to be traded to the Yankees." I cracked
up. Bright kid.....             ;-)
