Yea, and I will be without a job.  Well, maybe not but I would be in hot
water.  This has to be administratively done.  I am not trying to 'cop
out' but it is not my job to do this type of stuff and the more I do it
the more I get burned and don't get done what allows me to live ...
promotion.  It would take a long time to explain it and I won't bore
everyone.  Believe me, if I thought it was possible with even a moderate
amount of work I *would* do it.
