I guess a double bastard is someone whose parents weren't married and 
whose grand-parents weren't married....If that's the case, I must be a 
Marine...since the story goes, you can't be a marine if your parents 
were actually married.....

And I almost DID buy the 300 f2.8...coulda stretched the cash at the 
time, but the bugger is one humongous heavy chunk of glass and in the 
end, I really didn't think it worth it for one stop.
