"For every complex problem there is an answer that is clear, simple, and wrong" H. L. Mencken

First off, Mikey, thank you for the polite response! ;~)!

your signature tag by HL Mencken is, in its own way a statement of Mencken's own 'liberal arts' limitations.

In fact, as I have showed you - with the bus driver/conductor problem, there sometimes really are, simple, and clear solutions that dissolve the problem / make the problem go away.

HL Mencken happens to be one of my favourite American writers, but his limited vision / training drives that quote.

Some problems, like radical islamisicism, just don't have simple solutions. Bother / bugger, eh?!

So when HL Mencken says that NO such simple gordian-knot-cut solutions can exist he is just plain wrong. Try to believe me here.

One day soon I will be able to report on how the new 63s plus swarm subs is sounding.

When you are in full Summer, and I'm in full WINTER, I will be able to tell you if I prefer SS to the LEAKs strapped in mono, into the filtered 63s. AS you prescribed.

Tired old, grumpy, cancerous Timbo.

:-)! and ;-)!
