Doll,

I concur. Indeed, I was driven to the web to define those two terms. When I realized their meaning, it was the icing on the cake for me.

I have struggled through 15 revisions of a letter to my Congressman and Senators expressing the insanity of war with Iraq. After reading this, I sent the final draft and also included this letter.

I urge everyone who is opposed to the antics of this administration as I am, to forward this letter to every mail list and contact thier elected Federal officials as well. Me thinks Bush is simply a mad creature at this point. We must address this administration as a collective voice, in force.

: A great post, Alta! Thanks for dropping in on us!!

As for North Korea, I think this is contrived diversion, hatched by those working in tandem with the terrorists! Like you, my eye is on North Korea, with thoughts of what other rouge nation will flex its muscle. These are, indeed, ominous times.

Good to be back! Thanks, sis!
