My line: "Weight will cost more lengths at longer distances, but a length is more important at 5f than at 10f."
Your reply, in part: "This is purest bunk. There's no such thing as a more important length."
Poor HP, who has been so peaceable hitherto. Would you rather break one length slow in a hundred-yard dash or in a marathon? A point is worth about one length at five furlongs and about two lengths at 10 furlongs. Please read the TG introduction. Then look at a beaten-lengths chart. Then, as someone on the Derby List once said, get some milk and cookies before we move on to the alphabet.
Not since you refused to admit that Kelli Williams is the most beautiful woman on earth have you written anything so silly. Hegel would be disappointed in you. Enjoy your trip.
