well, no, of course I didn't mean to imply that. Only that the
volume of aat posts increased the enthusiasm for the creation
of s.a.p. How long do you suppose it would have taken for s.a.p.
to be born without them? (Me, I have not been convinced of the
truth of the aat, but as a semi-aquatic mammal myself, who never
really feels content when more than twenty feet from the seashore,
I have a sentimental atraction to it.)
