Carrol, I will only say:

1. Both of us are smart, but neither of us is rich.

2. I think it is a good idea not to develop this discussion further since 
this is like the song that never ends...it goes on and on, my friend, and 
everyone has heard more than one or twice.

3. I hope you get some relief from your elbow soon.

Over and out.
