I just removed all of my subkeys from this key.  Its still showing the
same expiration date in PGP.  Where could it be getting the date from?
Can the top key expire?

PGP shows it as DH/DSS, size 1024, created 9/14/02, expiring 9/14/03

Where else could the date be stored here?  this is a key pair right? but
without a sub key!?

Just trying to dig deeper.
