3 things, jman111:
1. The guy who calls himself Henry Vilas deliberately derailed this thread from its original topic. Do you care? I doubt it.
2. I have no "affinity" for ignoring questions asked of me. You are just making that up.
3. I didn't "jump to unfounded conclusions". I politely asked if I could make an assumption based on HV's non-answer to my question. He still hasn't answered either question. That's fine. I make no demands.
Now, as to the original topic of this post -- Larry Kaufmann pretty much said the same thing here: http://www.thedailypage.com/isthmus/article.php?article=36982
that Cieslewicz repeats in the Citizen Dave post, linked above.
