Jon Malmberg: The wing is safely with Mike.  Mike is RESPONSIBLE for the demo.  I have asked him to not let it get passed around like a red-headed step child.  Love you all, but it is funny how when things come back with rips, it seems no one remembers being the resposible party.   Mike, enjoy the demo and please
