Jon, you wrote a terrific piece. I'd like to see you submit it to the Roundel at the very least. I don't want to add to you're already swollen head, but this is nearly as good as the car stuff P.J. O'Rourke used to write before he got married and became a father. By the way, I tried to e-mail you but was informed that my access was "forbidden". I, too, have artistic pretensions; whaddaya think about the following intro to a piece like yours. OK, here goes: "I'll never forget the dark and stormy night when I stole my first M3...." You can finish it but don't forget where you got the idea. I know you'll agree it has pathos and literary tension but what do you think of my timing???
