    Great post erc, I'll pick Option 3 if for no other reason than I haven't have my "medicine" yet today and I think a good dose is required to add to your well thought out list.

     

    GO GEEKS!!

    A Freddie Award and a tip of Ted's head to erc for "Most Creative Use of Pop Culture Icons." My money and my waffle are on Ted -- cap or no cap.
