Which I've taken on board, if you'll excuse the metaphor. Mr. Bliss, Mr.
Gilbert, and Mr. Finney may not listen to it, but my exception wasn't
that some or any of them wanted to explain what _they_ thought to me. It
was the pernicious insistence on telling me what to think, how to think,
and that any thoughts other then their thoughts are confusion. Hence the
Orwellian references. There are four lights.

I overreacted to the problem as described above. I apologize.

I'd rather not have Mr. Bliss leave, either. I've taken on something
valuable from his participation, and would like to continue doing so.
