Since I've mentioned the subject of geneology, I'll repeat a story I heard
about a poor fellow over on airstrip one.  Seems he spent the most recent
thirty years of his life tracking down his family history.  Spent hundreds
of pounds, traveled, devoted his life to it.  Then, last month, a cousin
told him he was adopted.  Ahhh, sweet irony.
