I too am a believer in this
Ha! I say that to my students all the time and make exactly the same gesture. If only I had some of Joe's other attributes.

You're a very fortunate man to study with Joe. I've never heard anything but great things. I remember reading some great stuff he wrote for MD many years ago. Always on the money.
