```Thanks for the suggestions.

My original query returned 5784 rows in 184.89 sec. Brent Baisley's variant
returned 5784 rows in 1.34 sec. and Peter Brawley's solution resulted in
5780 rows in 1.46 sec. I'm officially impressed :)

I can't figure out why the "UNION" solution is missing 4 rows. I'll include
the 3 complete statements, so maybe someone smarter than me can figure out
why there's a difference in the result.
