Great job. You get the genuis award for 2009!


Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!

That was great DB. What perseverance.
I hate to ask how long the whole operation took though.

Liberals are people who care about others. Freethinkers are not constrained by the myths of religion.
