Heheheheh. "Crotchety"-away Dr. C.

I sent out a post yesterday to this effect after wading through 100 katmessages, but did
forget to mention the subject line thing. Actually, before you hit 'send' (and I forget all the
time too), maybe check the header to see if the title reflects what you've written.

That way, a treatise about Callie's bouncy blond mane won't be found under the header
"Razor's Edge" or similar.

Oh yeah, looks like some of the old Kats crew have been assigned "Jonny Quest". A certain
H-B person got summoned to Atlanta (something like Rommel was summoned to Berlin), and
 had to explain why he should be allowed to keep his job. I'm sure one of the answers wasn't
"I paint chartreuse beautifully!" (Atlanta in-joke...sorry gang). At least the JQ assignment keeps
*some* of the talent who worked on the Kats from seeking employment elsewhere for awhile
 - good news if Turner brains up enough to refuel the Turbokat.

"Dedicated to the indomitable spirit of the sled dogs that relayed
 antitoxin six hundred miles over rough ice, across treacherous waters,
 through Arctic blizzards from Nenana to the relief of stricken Nome in
 the winter of 1925. Endurance, Fidelity, Intelligence." -- "Balto"
