    Jon: Your post reminds me of my mother. As a youngster when we'd drive by a cemetery, my mother would ask a question: "Steve, how many do you think are dead?" I'd twist my head around, quickly surveyed the size of the cemetery and would venture a guess. "300!". She'd answer, "No, I'm pretty sure they are all dead." You gotta love a good old New England upbringing.
