[Histonet] Re:Bikes and Organ Donors

From:Pat Flannery

While I'm asking, what's the difference between a BSA and a Norton or  
Triumph, since they seem to be made by the same folks (according to  
Wikipedia anyway)?  Is it a Ford/Mercury/Lincoln type of thing or did  
one "become" the other at some point?

My apologies to the rest of the Histonetters for whom this is pretty  
off-topic, but we've entered into an area near and dear to my heart  
(and wallet).  I'll return you to your regularly-scheduled  
discussions of Histology after this post.  Anyone willing to take  
this off-list is welcome to continue, though.
