I just re-read my response to David Tomasson's post about counting 
sweat-equity by work completed instead of by the hour and I believe an 
appology from me is in order.

I have done much advocacy work in the disability-rights movement and I 
sometimes have a hair-trigger response to anything that seems insensitive

and pushing a discriminatory policy. In fact, he was simply giving a short, 
logical suggestion to someone who had a problem. The fact that I think his 
suggestion is flawed is no reason to jump down his throat.

My appologies to David and to the List. Please feel free to contact me by 
private EMAIL if anything I post in the future seems unduly harsh or
