         Touche!  Yes, someone let us down and badly. Considering all 
the work we did, to have this result is really dispiriting
         We need some tools so we at least can assess what needs to 
be done. Has anyone started to work on, as at least started to think 
about, the tool mentioned by Old Topo Depot earlier, one that would 
show where changes were made? That sounded like a great idea.
         Also, did anyone answer my question about importing small 
bits of TIGER for Burbank, the San Fernando Valley and South Cental?
         Meanwhile, I'm going back to sprucing up West LA. After all 
that time spent in downtown and Glendale, I need a break. I also 
can't bear the sight of Burbank or South Central.
