Thanks, all, and please keep it coming.

I especially appreciate the responses from you long-time Whirlers who know
exactly the situation in which I now find myself (again*).

Two songs come to mind:

*Killing Floor* - Electric Flag (yeah, I know it's a cover)
*Won't Get Fooled Again* - Who

> Chris

*The first occurred almost 10 years ago on a Deloitte-(mis)run project for
the CA Dept. of Workers' Comp. There I had what now appears to be the same
manager, albeit of an opposing gender. And I found Deloitte to be much like
Amway, in that freshman managers recruited mirror-fogging warm bodies so as
to become sophomore(ic) managers.
