Right, and I appreciate learning some simple ways to make *scratch* more 
useful, as well as finding the stray code in .emacs that was suppressing the 
startup screen.

The original post was from someone who doesn't like *scratch* to be the first 
thing he sees.  It seems clear that something in his customization is 
suppressing the normal startup screen (including possibly something at the site 
done by someone who likes seeing *scratch*...).

Cheers,
Mark
