Well, what else would you expect from a holiday treasured by people who wear a replica of a Roman instrument of torture and execution around their necks?

Anthony, you reminded me of a Pogo cartoon from way back in which three or more characters are careening along in a tiny car and discussing the New Years holiday. One is saying, everybody gets drunk and chases after one another's wives, and some get in fatal car wrecks, etc., etc. In the final panel, the one who has been listening says, "Why don't they pass a law against it?"

Hi, post- happy and merry Ellisonians. Hope it was a good one.
I'm posting my home phone for Adam and Judi, cause it breaks my heart to think their kitty could get better and I want to help. Steve, would you remove it after Adam gets it, cause I just don't want it floating forever on the net, hapless like myself.
I must call Comcast today and get the Internet.
Love ya all.


(Diane - I removed it regardless. Not a good idea to leave floating around the net. I will get this to him. - SB)
