Mine seems to say what everyone else's says and what you have printed  
below. So is that a first or second printing? Were there any other  
differences? I don't have the original acetate cover. Tell that guy to let  
it go. It's not worth carrying a lot of shame over...thanks...rob.

The opposite of a correct statement is a false statement.
But the opposite of a profound truth, may well be another
profound truth.
