	I am volunteering to maintain the quotes list and I will have a 
coffee showdown with anybody that disagrees  :-).
	Many kudos to Rob for doing an amazing job with the quotes list 
in the past I am sad that he is leaving.  (Let's hope it isn't contagious
:-)  
	I will actually be starting "Twin Quotes", a new file that is,
obviously, the twin of the previous one.  (Unless the name is too much to
take)  I will post the new one and e-mail upon request Rob's to cut
down on bandwith.  Any suggestions for quotes or disagreements and corrections
to the current ones are greatly appreciated.  Obviously, quotes that I 
think are good others will disagree with.  I will use my own judgment
in most places unless there is strong opinion against.  And if I do a poor
job, then you can always lynch me.  (Oooh, baad)  Since it is Friday as I
write this I will post the first edition by Monday (or so).  This will
start from episode 3001.

	Until then.
