Thanks, but I'll leave the research to you younger folks. I've been
teaching in the same inner city Middle School for 25 years and I have
only 841 days till retirement. Not that I couldn't learn something, but
I'm having too much fun working with my students to stop and research
why and how they tick.
Enjoy your research, Woody in KC
