I'd like to interject here.. this thread has really gone off the deep
end, but just chew on this for a little while, and perhaps something
good will come out of it. 99% of the time, people get agitated,
aggrivated, or ill about things that 1., they have no control over, and
2., in all likelyhood, 99% of the time, those 99% of events will *NEVER*
have any impact on you, *so* why even worry with it ? Personal feelings
never solve anything unless you happen to be husband and wife, and I
don't think any of you fit that category. It's time to move on to other
topics, if this thread has not run everybody off already.
