Thanks for the support.

Not to go all Yoda on you, but the wisdom and utility of surrender is
often under-appreciated, obscured by testosterone.  Similarly,
sometimes you have to lose, to win.  I learned this playing cards with
my wife Gail.  She's not fiercely competitive -- likes to play more
than win -- but it makes her happy to win all the same.  And when
she's happy, good things happen for me.  I've been known to (secretly)
throw a game now and again.  Enlightened self-interest.   A big
picture kind of thing.

Best, Jeff Davis
