If you would like to discuss things further outside the work environment (in
person preferably), please let me know.  Also, re-read my post below and
think about just how inappropriate your comments are.

       Try as I may to ignore your comments, I had to respond to your latest
contribution to this server.  Glen the world doesn't revolve around you and
I am sure that prior to your hiring, your company did fine without you. One
only needs to read between the lines you wrote to know what you are about.
You only further solidify yourself as the resident  " cry baby" of the
histonet and your employer. I for one wouldn't hire you if I had multiple
openings in my laboratory. I wonder what your employer would say about your
loyalty and commitment?
