    Hi Ray Recchia -

    >>That's also known as ostrichism.

    >I think you are spelling it wrong. The term is "ostracism."

    I rarely misspell.

    I said ostrichism and that is what I meant. The act of sticking one's
    head in a hole, like an ostrich.

    The fact it matched up so nicely with ostracism was, well, something only
    to be admired, and then, to be expected that it be mistaken for.

    >quite well.

    And the ostrich lays large eggs.
