I have to question what Dr. Brower meant by "...normal..."  If his 
"normal" is a 10 year moving average,  and if (as an example) the 
average 11 years ago was three times what it was last year, saying it is 
"slightly above normal" could cause one to misinterpret this to mean the 
Monarch is doing very well.
