   Calling us "mice" and himself a "cat" was insulting enough, 
but with this last post, our "Listowner" (with a capital "L" as he 
puts it) has really let his power go to his head.  As I read it, this 
"statement of purpose" is so subtle and convoluted as to permit a 
variety of interpretations, both pro and con, regarding washing disks 
and electric cars.  By the strictest interpretation it could even 
prohibit *his* recent post about MEC's president getting a Harvard 
Fellowship.  What it really seems to come down to is whether or not 
*Alex* sees a Michigan connection, and judging from the off-topic 
posts he choses to ignore (including his own) I'd say there's more 
going on here than the impartial enforcement of the list charter.

   I'd like to hear from someone in authority at the Mackinac Sierra 
Club as to why this selective intimidation is being tolerated.  Many 
on the list are afraid to post anything any more for fear of getting
