Hey I love that song. Wasn't there a Bush Tetras reunion recently?

Anyway, I meant the rebuke to be mild. Lots of people call each other nasty things here, which is fine up to a point. I thought that the epithet crossed the line. I was bothered by the misspelling of Yoshie's name, which lots of people do, and which completely mystifies me. Freudian that I am, I suspect either an unconscious or conscious insult when that happens.
