Funny thing happened on the way to bountiful  ....  (more below) (kind of
long, but we decided to tell everyone what happened here over the past 10
days since we started writing about CAN, DOD, ABA.)  I always feel the need
to present scenarios so as not to sound like a raving paranoid.  It sounds
like it anyway, so bombs away!

All I can say is that it is a good thing I'm connected to the world
proxy of UCSB.  Poor UCSB.

Erotica Tink?  What a hoot.
