With a hint of Plato, accurate and to the point. Who doesn't like Poo.

AHA ! Alan Alexander ! I knew him only as A.A. when a bunch of 20-somethings used to read Winnie Ther Pooh. ( Don't you know what 'Ther" means, asked Christopher Robin ?" )
... and I didn't know he was such a deep philosophical thinker. ( A.A., I mean, not Christopher Robin nor Pooh nor Tigger nor ... ).
Thanks for opening a new door to a precious old place.
