First off, to Cooper Greg: thanks for defending me against what you thought
was a slight. But I think you actually over reacted. Yes, the phrasing of
Jonathan's message is capable of being read as a snide remark (or
perhaps a bit of Socratic irony), but knowing Jonathan, I'm sure that
it was not intended to be taken in this manner. I've certainly had
compliments come out wrong!

Second, to Jonathan. Ouch!

Anyway, I hope my latest posting (not this one) which you probably
just received helps sort the Bultmann matter out.
