>> OPENING WORDS FROM THE EDITORBy Colin Vassallo, [Editor@...]
Kerry vs Bush, it's finally here. Who will win? If I was able to vote
(non-US here!), I'd go for Kerry. Put as a spectator, I have a feeling
Bush will win this one again. Let's hope there will be no freakin
recounts this time around.

woman? Did you know 5 different wrestlers have gone by the same
stage name? Who was know as a Professional Dwarf Tosser? Think
