Re: [ujeni] Fw: [Fwd: Dept. of Peace, tell your congressperson!]
- I think the politically correct term would be:
Male bovine effluvia...
Seeing how much success we have had as a human race already trying to being
peace through various means (none of wich have been terribly successful), I
doubt creating one more government agency to organize it would be that
Now...if they tapped me to head the Department, I would have a comlete
turn-around, and be all or it.

I just received this about a/the Department of Peace legislation. Thought
you might be interested.
Also, what is the relationship between this and the Peace Corps?
How important will the Peace Corps Director be in this activity?
