And I'll thank you to stop badmouthing Philadelphia, my adopted hometown, at least until I can get the hell out of here. Anyway, I would like to adopt Vizcacha's first question, which is pretty much the same as my original one which got lost in the rush to board the first train: "Mint states that she had to give up many things, 'five of them very great,' to become a sibyl. Can you tell us what those five things were?" --r.
