      > be wonderful if 2003 were the year a cure for breast cancer was found!!!!
      > This is one e-mail you should be glad to pass on. The notion that we could
      > raise $35 million by buying a book of stamps is powerful!

      > A "normal" book costs $7.40. This one is only $8.00. It takes a few

      > I would urge you to do two things TODAY:
