For this reader at least, the value of this particular analogy and the value of Haim's argument are both far lower than what he seems to believe they are. Of course, he could now command me to "BUTT OUT!" (as he had once done) - and that command too has about as much value as his arguments and his analogies.

("Still Shoveling Away!" - with apologies if due to Barry Garelick for any tedium caused; and with the observation that the EASY way out of this tedium is to refrain from opening messages purporting to have originated from GSC)
