I wrote a story several years ago, in which the Skeptics Club (from 
"Micro-Ducks from Outer Space") offered their standard billion-dollar 
reward to anyone who could prove the existence of consistent, reliable 
luck, and Scrooge showed them Gladstone Gander. (One of these days, I've 
got to have them offer a reward for witches, so I can figure out how 
Scrooge maneuvers Magica deSpell into their meeting.)

By the way, I've noticed over the years that whenever there's a heated 
controversy on this otherwise extremely friendly list, leading to 
moderators "scrubbing" posts lest things get out of hand, there's always 
one particular person in the thick of it. Need I mention who? (Most of 
these controversies at least touch on the topic of changing the nature 
of the list itself, or supposeded improprieties on the part of the 
moderators, usually stemming from allegations on the part of this 
person, but that's neither here nor there.)

Quack, Don
