Tim,

Apologies for singling out your note as an example.  It isn't
the only one.

I may be suffering from an arithmetic failure, but according to
my calendar, January 2018 is 12 months out and anything past the
first week of February 2018, such as July 2018, is significantly
more than 12 months out.

I know that passions run high on this set of issues, but can we
all please try to read each other's comments carefully enough to
avoid confusing the discussions by (I presume accidentally)
creating straw men and then attacking them?

best,
