"a sad sediment of Time's worst sand" (Byron)
Thanks, Michael. Good of you to recall these events to memory, and very well said.

In the longer perspective (and time measures not only motion but emotion), the role of salts as a flux is a fascinating surprise. Would the glass grains be considered anthropogenic tektites?

Richard - I really needed you as a never-ending resource as I was writing the never-ending story; that Byron quote is wonderful.

And I think we should just weld those two words together and refer to "anthropogenitektites" (but you would ceratinly know best from an etymological point of view).

And Byron's is sand in a glass (if a wine glass). I agree, let's weld those words. Perhaps even tighter, as anthropotektites.
