Damn!  I should have repeated my disclaimer about all my statements in
this renamed thread being about future stuff and not making any opinion
about past events.

This (renamed) thread is about motherhood and apple pie and how things
should be.  It makes no accusations about anything or anyone or any
situation in the past.

Looks like I need explicitly restate that disclaimer in every post ...
