Alright, flame me if you want, or tell me anew about the delete key
on my keyboard, but this discussion has gone far enough afield from
specific relevance to the clarinet performance/pedagogy that I feel
justified in commenting. As the subject line indicates, the original
topic was "HIV via saliva" and it pertained to the issue of catching
HIV by playing somebody else's setup. Now it's to the point of la-
menting the weaknesses of Western medicine and the pitiable circum-
stances of those with ME/CFSID. Might you now consider taking it
offline? At the very least, change the subject line to something
which makes a clear distinction between the original "HIV via saliva"
thread and what it has now become. Then I can be reasonably ad-
monished to use my delete key...and I will.
