Now hear this. I just read in the paper that some guy (an Israeli mathematician, I think) "discovered" a code in the Old Testament... by eliminating all spaces and then grouping the letters (in the original text) to form meaningful phrases, using a computer to keep track of them. You probably heard of something like that some time ago; a guy who took the letters in the Bible, placed in a square and the read it across and down like a crossword puzzle. (Of course he wrote a best-seller on that.) Well, just wanted to tell you... It really deserves no comments, except "Why don't I get such ideas?!" --Pablo Flores
