Sure, but there's little incentive to do so, so the rather heavy-handed
way you jumped on Eli seems out of place.  The implication seemed to be
that if he didn't "observe some benefit", then there likely wasn't any
(which obviously isn't true).

It serves to put the strident opposition to stealth fontification in
context, I think.


Americans are broad-minded people.  They'll accept the fact that a person can
be an alcoholic, a dope fiend, a wife beater, and even a newspaperman, but if a
man doesn't drive, there is something wrong with him.  -- Art Buchwald
