I'm not sure that there's much distinction between the 'greedy old 
fools' and the (lack of) mentality of some of those that think they are 
in the AM vs SSB 'war'.  I've heard a couple of comments at different 
hamfests, after a Viking II or a 32V is bought... "here's another one 
that'll never be heard on the air!"

Driving your AM Rig without a scope, 
is like driving your car at night, without headlights. (K4KYV)
