Just my $.02 worth...
People, please...others have tried to chastize Litch for his "tone" in the
past, and ended up being guilty of what they accuse Litch of. I see this
getting to that point once again...
As Michael has pointed out in the past, we frequently take

May I join you? I'm sure there are going to be a lot of people who won't
