Let me share with you a private note I have received regarding my original
posting on this topic:

I logged onto this newsgroup for the first time in many months, in large
part to read what I was sure would be a large number of tributes and
personal recollections of the late Dr. Leaky. Instead, I find posting
after posting of rediculous arguments over finding human fossils in coal
deposits, lessons on pyramid construction, etc.

I'll check back in a few more months to see if sanity has been restored.

Enough said.
