Subject: RE: Folk Legacy Problem - Patons need help!
That reminds me of a friend of mine who was on an Arctic expedition that went seriously wrong, and from frostbite he lost a couple of toes off his right foot, which, since he was an athlete of sorts, made him very unhappy, hobbling around. He brooded over the whole screwed up expedition for awhile, and started making threatening phone calls to the leader of the expedition, and writing letters to the press, and all sorts of things, and then one day hobbled up onto the doorstep of the leader of the expedition, knocked on the door, and shot him dead. At the trial he was able to get off for medical reasons, as he was "lack toes intolerant".

yours, Peter T.
