     Come on, Dave--you're supposed to be the original space barbarian--you
gotta be born to surf, as far as you can telnet, turning electric dreams
into reality :)

    While this is a long-time list dream (and , potentially, could be way
cool), I have to wonder if this would be good for either us or Dave.  Even
limiting list-mail to HW headers might generate enough volume to scare him
off, and ... well, would he suss out in time that even die-hard--indeed,
utterly immortal--Hawkwind fans can complain bitterly (and at great length)
about the band?

     O Brock, that art a Hawklord, David be thy name ....

    I know DB tends to be rather shy and stand-offish in person--hell,
given the way he lurks behind the synths it's no surprise.  I would hate
for him to be freaked out by the list, which could function as an ever
greater link between the fans and the band.

    On the other hand, I'd love to see discussions between Al and Dave :)
