Hi Eric,

No worries.  I tried and failed to get buffer local variables to do what
I wanted, as it appears you have, too.  My failure probably has to do
with my ignorance as much as anything, but Dan's analysis and your
thread convinced me that it wasn't all me.  

I found it liberating to work on an Org mode file that would run in a
precisely defined environment, separate from the environmental mish-mash
that feels comfortable to me in my everyday work.

At any rate, I appreciate your good humor, even when I sound dull and
off point.

All the best,

Thomas S. Dye
