Well, hello there!And let me tell you this doesn't surprise me. Due to my lack of knowledge on the subject, I was never able to follow well the studies you are undertaking. However, from what comes through in your writings, I always knew: We are kindred spirits, you and I. Therefore it only makes sense that we share this very interesting astrological configuration, which comes, by the way, with some pretty neat features: For starters, due to all this fire around us any pie thrown in our direction cooks immediatelly to ashes, never coming close to its target. Just a question of keeping the flames strong and steady, really.My best to you, too.Bryan

is: Was THIS war -- the war in Iraq -- necessary? Especially given the needs
of the war and reconstruction in Afghanistan, the need for greater expenditure
on 'homeland security', the way intelligence was twisted (to conform to
BushCo's pre-existing beliefs), and on and on and on. Especially given that
the American invasion and occupation of Iraq has served as a recruiting tool
for the very terrorists BushCo claims to oppose -- and predictably so, if Bush
& co had bothered to ask anyone who has studied the middle east and its
politics (which according to my friends who do, they pretty much didn't).

hand, it would be hard to make more of a hash of it than our current Fearless
Leaders have done. At least Kerry has some first-hand exposure to combat,
which one hopes will help keep him honest...
