And anything I'd likely grab or drop when bending over, they've seen before in all it's myriad forms At least Jack and Bobby died before they got TOO tarnished by association with their family Helping \/tian To Stop /\tortion Richard Smith

They're kind of a necessary evil in some respects, but it almost makes you wonder if there's a third type organization going to eventually be formed to deal with the first two: big business and big labor I've not been really screwed by unions yet, most likely because I've not belonged to any until recently. The first I belonged to was at AT&T the Telecommunications Workers of America have a pretty strong base. The

It's a carny thing...and as old as paper cups. <G>

God Fearin' Parents
That may be why hyper-Christians resent atheists so much: nontheists do not require belief in the gods to be happy and ethical beings, while theists believe that everyone does. When hyper-Christians see nontheists behaving with honor, distinction, charity, and worthy of trust, the cognative dissonance must be intense. All the mental anguish theists expend on trying to not "sin," and their time spent in cult buildings, and their time spent reading their occult paraphanilia.... and their behavior is no better,

Fundy Deliveries
Only if you wish to lose business. Atheists are persecuted in the USA. Hiding out in New Zealand, last I heard, with US$600,000. When one does a Encyclopedia search for the O'Hairs on AOL, one reads that they have mysteriously vanished. Seemed kind of strange to me that an encyclopedia would go to the bother of listing a trivial fact, seeing how they leave out so much information on every subject they write about. How did you stand such

Energizer Bunny
Is his insanity that compartmentalized? I assumed he was a raving lunatic. I merely asked him about their cult's distinction between dispensationalism and millinialism. The reply was "I'M NOT LISTENING TO YOU!!!"

Reggie White
No. I read about it on the alt.religion.scientology newsgroup.

The challenge
We had to watch it if we wanted to see Star Trek. Everyone in my family but me were diehard LIS fans. I was the only one that like Trek. So we compromised. My dad thought Trek was too dull. <G> The substitute, in the film, doesn't do as good a job of it, I think. Let's hope no more appear. Helping \/tian To Stop /\tortion Richard Smith

End Times
That may be too complicated for him. Perhaps he pushes a mop around.

Sinatra
Thanks for the anecdote, now saved to disk. As I said earlier, Sinatra was a dickhead with a good voice and great delivery. Hoboken, NJ. No idea where the family was from, though. Amen. Northern Italians return the favor by emphasizing the brains of that pair, rather than the muscle. (don@vard.org)

The Onion
Just wait. Someone, reading this, will now have gotten the bright idea, and talk to his friends who make flavored cognacs and schnapps It'd look kind of like a white-russian Single grain? <G> I knew people who smoked them all the time. Of course, I also knew people who drank Aqua Velva Moosecatel? Helping \/tian To Stop /\tortion Richard Smith

Hey, I turn 41 in just nine days. It IS very much undiscovered country. But you gotta get to your feet and face forward and remember this warning: once you're over the hill, you start gaining speed <G> Helping \/tian To Stop /\tortion Richard Smith

Oh yes. They make Amway salesdrones look desirable. Or maybe they can't think. <G> Helping \/tian To Stop /\tortion Richard Smith

Deja vu
Someday I'll get around to memorizing a bunch of symptoms for something really nasty in pschological circles, so that I can annoy those who annoy me by sitting down and wanting to practice their new psychoanalysis skills on Helping \/tian To Stop /\tortion Richard Smith

PA Murders
Preston Simpson wrote in a message to Richard Smith Do you believe there should be such a thing as a victimless crime? I don't.. So what I am trying to get at with this, is who's the victim? You're absolutely right. Still, if he wants to do the echo equivalent of jumping around screaming in a soiled diaper, who am I to try to stop him? He's funny. He's blase, too, but still, he's funny.

The challenge
I forgot to mention that I'm also looking to rent some Harold Lloyd. Ayup. That may have been the General I'll have to see it again to make sure. He was a master of deadface. I saw that bit, I thought I was going to pass out from lack of oxygen from laughing so hard. You know, when you begin to see the little black dots <G> Just saw The Great Dictator last year
