        This Whole ET over or not chimpery reminds me of the whole Sloan
fooferaw that persists (in some way or another) until this day. To be
blunt, it's never going to be settled until someone hears, definitley, from
a member of the band as to it's future disposition.

        What's ironic for me is that PB is the first thing by ET I've heard
since Happens all the Time from Peter that justifies the love, respect, and
admiration so many other citizens show them.

        Hell, it got a four-star review in Q, whaddmore do you want? It's
gotta be good.

        (Which my belated, begruging listen would seem to indicate that it is)

        I would guess that right now ET is in as much as a state of flux as
any of our lives are at this moment, and that should say it all.  And as
for differences in interviews, well, we all know Rashomon by now , and
different people have different takes on things.

        What the Hell Am I Doing Up ?
