 chill out.

I have a story to tell, which relates to the Dan B and Chuck I. debate......

Once upon a time, there was a station owner (not me) who was in a quandry 
because his sales manager (a guy) was rather obnoxious and didn't get along 
with the secretary (a gal).  He often demanded she get him coffee.  She 
didn't comply. They didn't get along.  He never came on to her.   Besides, 
she was too busy banging the GM.  She pondered: "How can I get rid of the 
sales manager?"  Ah! -How about a sexual harassment suit?   And that 's what 
she filed.  

I submit this as one of the possible reasons why hard-drives are so widely in 
use. They can be trusted not to file false sex-harassment suits (or any other 
kind).  So, while a lot of us depsise big corporations as station owners (and 
such are not my favorite kind, either in such large numbers), keep in mind 
that such station owners, big & small, often CYA  (or actually CTA) with 
fewer people and more automation.

Moral of the story..... blame the lawyers, too.
