hi howard

well, you have been waiting for so long to sing this song

my advice would be...

don't be fooled by what you see, or by what you hear, make sure it is a song to all of your friends, cos they will take the challenge to their hearts, challenge their preconceived ideas, and say goodbye to long standing fears

Key question.

Does the software include a 'Sondheim' button?

If not, Microsoft is going to miss out on a very significant demographic.
