Aha!! A cynic. Don, do you realize that the quantity of
irony that is permitted in any one person's post in a calendar
year has been all used up by you. In fact, I think you
are about 3-1/2 years ahead. Any more and you will be fined.

Is the Topanga to which you are referring, the same place that
has roadsigns (as I go through it) that say "Topanga Cyn"? That's
somewhere off 101 as one is about to enter the greater LA complex.
