Subject ? I thought we were talking about optical effects . . .

Oh, the heck with it; why belabor the obvious ? I say let's let differences be differences, and call it a draw . . .

I saw Spike Jones at the Minnesota State Fair around 1948. Hilarious. He was born the day Roald Amundsen set foot on the South Pole.
