I know.  I was just having a little fun.  Kind of in response to the question 
of whether English c's derived from Latin c's derived from Greek kappas should 
be pronounced [k] or [s] before front vowels.  Answer:  I don't think it really 
matters in the grand scheme of things; I tend to go for [s].
