Honestly, Grant, didn't your mother teach you anything?

If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all. (smirk, smirk,
wink, wink)

And to bastardize an old cliché:  ...soap gets in your......EYYYYYYYYYES!...
(I think it was The Platters from our youth)

Big advertisers=soapy reviews.  Marshall McLuhan (I think) ;-)

Nice ad in this months QST.

Also a review of the 9000 Contest, done in such a giddy tone you'd think it
had the ability to open a wormhole in the continuum, or that it could
effectively replace a Lamborgini as a babe magnet.  (The fact that it was a
bit buggy with certain firmware issues was barely mentioned in passing at
the end of the review).  Not to mention the fact that a high powered
flashlight and magnifying glass are apparently required to read many of the
control markings.

No doubt a nice radio, but I'm still trying to rinse all the soap from the
bubble machine out of my hair :-)
