Thank you, EP. You also know I am not satire-impaired and I am, in
fact, *honored* to be termed a curmudgeon by the likes of you. =;^)

Just to finish the thread,

I *did* wind up taking it to the AAA-owned
AutoMark. I felt very comfortable when I
left there at $702 for new brakes/rotors
all around.

The car feels great (as I would expect) -
time will tell, but my comfort level is high.

Thanks for all the input...

....Mike
