         Thank you, Clayton, for your trenchant comments.  This 
sounds like the Keystone Kops chasing a pair of gullible 
buffoons.  We've seen a lot of this in recent years --- Federal 
agents aiding and abetting none-too-smart criminals, purchasing fake 
bomb parts for them and egging them on.  Sounds to me like a 
combination of entrapment and the Feds trying to justify their jobs.
