Message Detail:
Mark,
I wasn't reacting to the movie, but to presentation of it as the "masthead" of the ad you posted, with its representation of presumed Civil War-era Morse. I was imply that the best efforts at fidelity can be wasted once the product is handed over to advertisers. Look back at the "ad" you posted with the di-dahs under the title and that, while GETTYSBURG is in "modern Morse," LINCOLN is spelled out in Morse as AFOCAIF, for some reason that escapes me. (No criticism intended for the guys -- on the contrary!! I realize they weren't responsible for the didahs in question and unable to deliver a lecture on the difference.)

Onward and upward, and kudos to your group.
