Just so you know, you're personally responsible for making me drag that book 
out and re-reading it (and 2 of my other Dave Barrys subsequently).

Yes, but in some parts the anime completely strays from the original 
material, as written by Takahashi.  It's a signifigantly different 
interpretation, and no matter how many people first experienced the anime, 
that doesn't make it right...  Besides, the anime pales in comparison to the 
manga (IMO).

Becky, if you re-read that, you just made a pretty good case for the canonity 
(is this a word?) of the manga!  ^_^  (If the episode is virtually the same 
as the manga, there's no cause for complaint...)

Welcome back, Matt/Don!  You were the one who had "Matt (or Don!) Newkirk" in 
the header, right?

Not that he could have waited 'til next Tuesday or anything, of course.  <end
