Subject: tattoo legend hit Qualcomm Inc in San Diego today

For Dave Gross:

Two emails pasted here, FYI. We have an internal mailing list for parents interested in daycare, and someone posted the legend. A few minutes later, an alert reader posted the pointer to your web page. That's an excellent web page, and I thought I'd followup by letting you know that the tattoo legend made it this far, in the form described below, and that your web page should help it dead-end here.
