My apologies in advance, I am not following this one too
closely, and nothing at all personal to anyone involved...  but
the above sentence out of context triggers my current summer
frustration, <GRIN>

It reminds me of my high-school just graduated son and his job
search.  His approach was going around, collecting applications,
filling them all out and eventually getting around to submitting
them.  THen spending the rest of the summer playing video

When I further pressure him to go out an find a job, he just
goes out, collects more applications...  And comes back to play
video games...  When pressured, he responds with the number of
applications he has filled out.  Nothing about going out and
"working" to find a job...

Again, nothing pointed at the current email thread, but a
comment anyway...
