Ceramic Hobs...great guys. I remember reading an interview with them (Muckraker magazine maybe?) after 9/11,and they were laughing about it, calling each other and telling each other to turn on the tv, and finding the whole event to be generally hilarious. Yeah, what's not hilarious about almost 3000 innocent people being killed?
