	I'd just like to make it clear that I agree with you and am not
whitewashing the aboriginals.  FI, I really have difficulty with all this
`Creator' stuff (I hear Burns laffing in the background), but I've stood
in the `Circle' too... (was kinda like the swearing-in oath's part about
defending against communist infiltration in a union hall..! :)

	Sounds like a great book you quoted from.
