I already deleted Gordo's post but I think I recall reading the next line
to be something like, "If I can buy it, the slat grille stays." I took
this to mean that he knew it was not correct but liked it anyway, which, if
I recall was the _point_ of that particular passage.

You know there were none, as well as you know there were no M38A1s built in
