That's correct Monk and that is indeed the solution being considered in area where it would be appropriate.

You can just go ahead an write "bullshit." Saves us from having to count the dashes.
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

I actually didn't know what word to put into the blanks. Seemed like too much effort to figure it out and I was able to still get the intent of the message.

"Batshit"

Always have to bring Bush into the conversation, don't you?

LOS ANGELES — The spread of a particularly virulent form of tuberculosis in South Africa illustrates a breakdown in the global program that is supposed to keep the disease, one of the world’s deadliest, under control.
This new report about drug resistant TB is worrisome to me. The problem has been growing in recent years and threatens to become a major world health problem.

Cases have been reported in the US.

From Yahoo Health News.

Also in the UK Beag, most of the cases being traced to immigrants from sub Saharan Africa, but when this was pointed out to 'Smiling Boy' Blair, with the recomendation that immigrants be screened, it was rejected as 'rascist'!

I think most of you will enjoy this bumper sticker I sighted today:

Have no fear. The GOP and their Christian Right pals will do their best to commit another error.

A message from Frank

Post by MichelleH » Mon Mar 26, 2007 4:52 pm

Taking a break from bashing (well deserved bashing) of the government, we now bring you a Frank sighting!

Here's message from him I received yesterday:
Hey Michelle!

Sorry I haven't been around. My computer situation is still the same. I hate to spend money on a provider with the antiquated machine I have, but I guess slow is better than nothing. I'll be back online again as soon as possible.

Bob's a good old dude. I had thought about suggesting him before, but I was afraid he was too opinionated and argumentative. Now, since arch is gone, ( he is still gone ain't he?), I think Bob would be a fine choice. Tell him I vouched for him. ;) Tell everyone hey! Take care. Seeya!
