- Your politics (or anyone elses) is of no interest to me. That may be why I
do not find it appropriate on a notetab list, even an off topic one.
Your comments are very in vogue at this time. In the appropriate place I
would probably get as big a chuckle as you over them. After your yardstick
for measuring a man, I would say they both got more votes than you. That
would make you very small on your own measurement device.
Since I do not believe this is the proper forum for this discussion, I will
not be goaded into saying more.

- Hi everyone,
I aggree with Lloyd that this is not a political forum although I
enjoyed the original eMail immensely. However I do not believe Jody and
Eric are keeping a database of our political ideas and that is a good
thing. I was going to say you could send political and satirical stuff
private eMail, but I'm afraid pretty soon some one would be talking
about Me and MyKindOfFolks and then what would I do but throw up all
over the keyboard!
However I think referals to newsgroups or lists of those who share
specific perspectives would be appropriate. (I don't belong to any of
them or know their addresses, because one rant sounds pretty much like
Sincerely to all
Can't we all get just along and talk in HTML?
