to re-iterate your <sigh>
my voice, weak though it may be, shall indeed speak for itself, in
agreeing wholeheartedly with Pamela. Ah for the good ol' days, when
political discussions were flat-out barred from the list. Mel, dear mel
- where are you?
and fwiw - my own reasons for not wanting political threads here is
because there are so very many OTHER listservs/chatgroups/ etc/ ad
infinitum which DO discuss politics to no end. I don't see that it adds
anything to repeat such discussions here.
