   Hey Andrew, I believe I stated clearly that the list is a proper
place to express ones opinions - Rons,yours,mine and everyones - that
doesn't seem like intolerance to me.I happen to think that ALL the
players he listed have/had great tone in their own way.It was your
characterising his comments as "stupid & absurd" that I take issue with,
but I guess that's my problem.I suppose we'll just have to agree to
disagree and hope this rather inane thread dies soon.
                                              Peace, Jeff
