Hi all, That remark was meant to be tongue in cheek, and I hope that no one else was offended by it. That being said, to me an "expert" in a given field is someone whose name is readily recognized by everyone in the field. I'm sorry if I have a different definition of expert than the rest of you, and for that I am being punished. Richard Richard L. Wood, Ph. D.
