The "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover" song has always been a favourite of
mine too, but also thought that it was in poor taste in the context that the 
original writer used on the list. However, I should keep my mouth shut so 
that writer doesn't think that I was just another "Canadian telling him how 
to interpret US Amateur regulations, and sticking his nose into places it 
didn't belong."

Let's get back to APRS.
