Yep Mike, I got your joke - and laughed out loud.  I was actually responding in 
kind.  :-)

The line I cited ("Um, isn't a parsec a unit of distance, not time?") is a 
direct quote from the 'Family Guy' spoof on 'Star Wars', in which Han's bluff 
is called.  

Anyways... sorry if you thought I was calling you out.  Let's finish with some 
sagacious and highly topical commentary from Rush Limbaugh:

"My good friends, the liberal galactic media is at it again.  They never stop.  
Now they're trying to convince us that Hoth is melting.  Well, that's crazy.  
Just trying to scare us.  And if that weren't enough to get you mad, we now 
have news that Lando Calrissian has been made the chief administrator of the 
Bespin mining facility.  Gee, I wonder how he got THAT job.  Well, let me tell 
you how he got that job.  Affirmitive action strikes again. "
