Dear Peter,

Amen to that, Brother!  I miss our lives of field work at West Indies Laboratory on St. Croix.  Marine labs and field stations are special places, may they thrive.  Cheers, John

Even the secretarial staff joined in.  Used to bother me a bit - they were disrespecting my science.  But then one day I woke up and realized they were right.  I had a career filled with the joy of field work - even when conditions were terrible - while they were stuck behind a lab bench.  I'll take those insults any day.
