Ah, gee. Roosen's so dependent on his religion that unless he's got some big
daddy in the sky who created him specially, he feels worthless. As stupid as
he continually demonstrates himself to be, that's understandable.

Disclaimer: Hey, I understand VAXen and VMS. That's what I get paid for. My
understanding of astronomy is purely at the amateur level (or below). So
unless what I'm saying is directly related to VAX/VMS, don't hold me or my
organization responsible for it. If it IS related to VAX/VMS, you can try to
hold me responsible for it, but my organization had nothing to do with it.
