Well, that's *DWJ*'s interpretation of what he said. *g*  But all
of the other various interpretations seem to be quite interesting
as well --  and lead to somewhat different readings of Marcus'
state of mind!  Such as "bad house" or "Horse make house.  Man
don't", both of which have been suggested.

"Tai Chi works wonders when I feel like killing things. 
Of course, so does actually killing things."
