    ELMER, if you're asking if I know who the Devil *thinks* you are, then no. I haven't a clue who the Devil, Satan, or Lucifer, et al, is...people change their names so often here, it's hard to keep up. It's possible that I knew him for a while under a different name that he kept for a long time...but I really don't know. Sorry.

    If this isn't what you wanted to know, just let me know. I couldn't find a 3:30 in Weds Live.
